Rosarita Cuccoli was born in Bologna, Italy, in 1967 and has lived in Paris since 1999. She writes both poetry and fiction and publishes in English, Italian and French. Her first collection of poetry, L’Amore Più Profondo was published in 1998. Poems from this collection were showcased at an exhibition in the streets of Camogli, on Italy’s Ligurian coast. In 1999, two of her poems in Italian were nominated for the Italian literary prize, Premio Miramare. Her second poetry collection, The Love of a Woman, prefaced by poet/critic Andrew Parkin, was first presented in 2011 at the Cambridge Society of Paris. Her novel, La Logica della Solitudine was published in 2004. Rosarita is a graduate from the universities of Cambridge (Magdalene College), where she took an M.Phil in International Relations, and Bologna, where she graduated with honours in Political Science, specializing in Development Cooperation. She has worked for banks, international organizations and non-profit associations in different countries. She teaches in France and writes for various publications.

Bonny Finberg, a native New Yorker, has lived in Europe, India and Nepal. Her work has been translated into French, Japanese and Hungarian. Her poetry, fiction and reviews have appeared in numerous publications and e-zines, including Le Purple Journal, Upstairs at Duroc, Outlaw Bible of American Poetry, The Brooklyn Rail, Evergreen Review, Ping Pong, Neighborhood, Best American Erotica, most recently the Unbearable Big Book of Sex as well as Lost and Found: New York Stories from Mr. Beller’s.

Her chapbook of short stories, How the Discovery of Sugar Produced the Romantic Era (2006) is featured in the video 5 Guys Read Finberg. Déjà Vu, a poetry and photocollage chapbook, appeared in 2011. Her photography has been exhibited as well as published in print and online art journals. Her novel, Kali’s Day, is forthcoming and she is working on her second novel.

Born in Ohio, George Vance dictated his first poem to his mother at 5. Following a long hiatus of prosaic teaching gigs sprinkled with bardly syncopations, he turned full-time to poetry after tiring of translating verses posted in Metro cars by the RATP in Paris, where he has lived off and on for the last 30 years. He has also resided in Vienna, Aachen, Brussels and the French overseas possession New Caledonia (Kanaky), and now lives in Reims. He has read at numerous Paris venues and his work has been published in Upstairs at Duroc, Pharos, the on-line magazines Ekleksopgraphia, Nth position and Retort, and is a regular contributor to the poetry blog Rewords. His hybrid poetry volume A Short Circuit (including the poem series Bent Time) and a chapbook, Xmas Collage, were both published by corrupt press. Vance continues to work on text/image fusion and street art experiments.
