John Coletti is the author of Mum Halo (Rust Buckle Books 2010), Same Enemy Rainbow (fewer & further 2008), and Physical Kind (Yo-Yo-Labs 2005). He recently served as editor of The Poetry Project Newsletter and co-edits Open 24 Hours Press with poet Greg Fuchs. Other recent projects include a collaborative print with artist Kiki Smith (editioned by the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at Rutgers University), as well as a libretto for Excelsior (Caught: The Wide Open), an opera composed by Caleb Burhans commissioned by Chicago’s Fifth House Ensemble and premiering in 2013
Anselm Berrigan’s books of poetry include Notes from Irrelevance (Wave), Free Cell (City Lights), and Zero Star Hotel (Edge). He’s a believer in the principle of the impractical invitation, and writes from the noise of that place. His jobs have included teaching, temping, messenging, receptioning, directing the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church for a few years last decade, and the current non-paying gig of poetry editor for the estimable Brooklyn Rail.
