BIOS :

(En) Kevin Craft lives in Seattle and directs the Written Arts Program at Everett Community College. His first book, Solar Prominence (2005), was selected by Vern Rutsala for the Gorsline Prize from Cloudbank Books. A new collection, Vagrants & Accidentals, has just been published in the Pacific Northwest Poets Series of the University of Washington Press. His poems, reviews, and essays have appeared widely in such places as Poetry, The Kenyon Review, New England Review, and The Stranger. He has received fellowships and awards from the Bread Loaf Writers Conference, MacDowell Colony, the Bogliasco Foundation (Italy), the Camargo Foundation (France), 4Culture, The Jack Straw Cultural Center, and Artist Trust. Craft served as editor of Poetry Northwest from 2009 – 2016. He is now executive editor of Poetry NW Editions, and a director of the UW Writers in Rome program which he has led for nearly 20 years. He believes that poems, like good travelers, live in the go-between.

(Fr) Née en Allemagne de l’ouest, Sabine Macher arrive en France en 1976 pendant son parcours d’études germaniques. Au début des années 80 elle se tourne vers la danse et y entame un double parcours d’interprète et d’auteur-chorégraphe, principalement dans le champs de la danse contemporaine, mais aussi dans celui du théâtre et de la performance. A cela s’ajoute une pratique d’écriture qui prend la forme du livre à partir de 1992, associant parfois la photographie, la traduction, mais aussi des pièces sonores et créations radiophoniques, restituant une place à l’oralité propre à la poésie et au documentaire. Cet ensemble de désirs et d’activités produit des formes tantôt collectives, tantôt solitaires, en tension entre l’intime et le social, le théâtre et l’espace urbain, articulées par la rencontre et le hasard. Derniers livres parus : Deux coussins pour Norbert (Le bleu du ciel, 2009) et Résidence absolue (Isabelle Sauvage, 2011). Dernière traduction : Je rêve que je vis ? Ceija Stojka, Editions Isabelle Sauvage, 2016 , de : Träume ich, dass ich lebe ? Picus Verlag, Wien 2005,

(En) Charles Borkhuis is a poet and playwright living in NYC. His nine books of poetry include: Finely Tuned Static with paintings by John McCluskey (Lunar Chandelier, 2017). Dead Ringer (BlazeVox, 2017), Disappearing Acts (Chax 2014), Afterimage (Chax, 2006 ). His plays have been produced in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hartford, and Paris. His two radio plays were aired over NPR and can be heard on http://www.pennsound.
