The Grand Finale – Hosted by Kristofer Collins

Jason Baldinger, Stephanie Brea, Kristofer Collins, Angele Ellis, 

John Korn, Adam Matcho, Bob Pajich & Scott Silsbe.

Jason Baldinger has spent a life in odd jobs, if only poetry was the strangest of them he’d have far less to talk about. Somewhere in time, he has traveled the country, and wrote a few books, the latest of which “The Lower 48” (Six Gallery Press) and the chapbook “The Studs Terkel Blues” (Night Ballet Press) as well as the anthologies Lipsmack! (Night Ballet Press) and Good Noise (Thrasher Press).  A short litany of publishing credits include: The New Yinzer, Shatter Wig Press, Blast Furnace, B.E. Quarterly and Fuck Art, Let’sDance. You can also hear audio of some poems on the bandcamp website by just typing in his name.

Stephanie Brea has slung coffee, wrote about inventions and worked for a company that built museum exhibits. This means she likes her espresso doubled, is most likely responsible for some of the products pitched on late night infomercials and can spell archaeopteryx without the need for spell check. She is a part-time copy editor and facilitates creative writing workshops for local schools and organizations. Her work has been published in Pear Noir!, The Legendary, Nerve Cowboy and the PittsburghCity Paper.

Kristofer Collins is the Books Editor at Pittsburgh Magazine. He runs Low Ghost Press. He also owns Desolation Row Records and manages Caliban Bookshop in Oakland. His most recent chapbook is “Last Call” published by Speed & Briscoe in 2010.


Angele Ellis‘s poetry, fiction, and reviews have appeared in over forty publications and eight anthologies. She is author of Arab on Radar (Six Gallery), whose poems earned her a fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and Spared (a Main Street Rag Editors’ Choice Chapbook). She lives in Friendship, both a neighborhood and a state of mind.

John Korn lives in Pittsburgh. He is the author of a book of poetry titled Television Farm which can be purchased on amazon.com. He has worked as a mental health social worker for many years now. He was nominated for two Pushcart Prizes, one for his poem “14 young women” and another for his poem “Yellow lamp shade head.”  He didn’t win either of these prizes and he is not even sure what those prizes are.

Adam Matcho is an obituary writer and contributor to The New Yinzer. He is a former technical writer, novelty shop clerk, basketball coach and gas station attendant. His chapbook, Six Dollars an Hour: Confessions of a Gemini Writer, was published by Liquid Paper Press and his essay collection, The Novelty Essays, was published by WPA Press. When not writing death notices, Adam tries to write about life. He lives in a former craft shop with his wife, two sons and too many animals. As Dave Newman has said, “Adam Matcho has more talent than most corporations have profits, and his vision of America is tragic and brilliant and hilarious.”

Bob Pajich is a writer and musician from the Burgh. His latest book, The Trolleyman, was published by Stanton Heights’ Low Ghost Press. He is a Taurus.

Scott Silsbe was born in Detroit. He now lives in Pittsburgh where he writes, sells books, and makes music with friends. His poems and prose have appeared in numerous print and web periodicals including Nerve CowboyThe Chariton ReviewThird CoastThe Volta, and the Cultural Weekly. He is the author of two poetry collections: Unattended Fire (Six Gallery Press, 2012) and The River Underneath the City (Low Ghost Press, 2013).

Over at the Trib, Rege Behe has more about Collins & his new book Local Conditions (h/t Joan Bauer).
