Heather Dubrow, John D. Boyd, SJ, Chair in Poetic Imagination at Fordham University, is the author of two full-length collections of her poetry, Forms and Hollows (Cherry Grove Collections) and Lost and Found Departments (published in August 2020 by Cornerstone Press), as well as of two chapbooks. One of her plays was produced by a community theater, and two of her poems have been set to music and performed. Among the journals where her poetry has appeared are Prairie Schooner, Southern Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, and The Yale Review. Her other publications include seven single-authored volumes of literary criticism. Between fall 2009 and summer 2020 she was director of Fordham’s Poets Out Loud reading series. You can order Lost and Found Departments here from Cornerstone Press or here from Amazon.

Erica Ehrenberg’s poems have appeared in anthologies and journals including The Paris Review, The New York Review of Books, Slate, The New Republic, Everyman’s Library Pocket Poet Series, Guernica, Harvard Review Online, The Mississippi Review, The Bennington Review, and The Los Angeles Review of Books Quarterly. She has been a Wallace Stegner Fellow in poetry at Stanford, and a poetry fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown.

Kip Zegers taught English at Hunter College High School from 1984 until 2017, but he began writing poetry long before that, in 1971. He has published numerous chapbooks and full-length books, the last three, The Poet of Schools (2010), The Pond in Room 318 (2015), and A Room in the House of Time (2020), with Dos Madres Press. The titles of these books reflect that much of Kip’s work has been about schools and his life as a teacher/poet. Kip’s poetry explores daily life and core human experiences. His continuing inspiration is the work of George Oppen. Kip’s recent books are available here from Dos Madres Press or here from Amazon.
