The following is biographcal information for those that are interested:

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 written a few books, the latest of which are The Lower 48 (Six Gallery Press) and the chapbook The Studs Terkel Blues (Night Ballet Press). A short litany of publishing credits include Blast Furnace, B.E. Quarterly, Lilliput Review, Green Panda Press, Pittsburgh Poetry Review, Glass Block and Fuck Art, Let’s Dance. You can also hear audio of some poems on the bandcamp website by just typing in his name.

Jim D. Deuchars is an American poet born in Waukesha, WI. He currently resides in Pittsburgh, PA. His poetry has been called “a special brand of doggerel, nonsense and fufaraw”. His performance style has been described as “like Gallagher, but with poems instead of watermelons”.

Richard L. Gegick is from Trafford, PA. His short stories and poems have appeared in various magazines. He’s a waiter, and writes mostly about being a waiter.
