    Information: Stuart Greenhouse ’s poems have appeared in journals such as Antioch Review, Bellingham Review, Chelsea, Fence, Paris Review, and Ploughshares. New poems are forthcoming in Many Mountains Moving. His chapbook, “What Remains,” was chosen for a National Chapbook Fellowship and was published by the Poetry Society of America in December of 2005. He lives in Central Jersey with his wife, daughter and son.

    Joel Allegretti is the author of The Plague Psalms, which appeared in 2000 from The Poet’s Press and is now in its third edition, and Father Silicon (2006), also from The Poet’s Press. Allegretti’s poetry has appeared in Art/Life, Rattapallax, Anglican Theological Review, BigCityLit, The Wandering Hermit Review, Manhattan Literary Review and other publications. He is represented in the anthology Chance of a Ghost (Helicon Nine Editions, 2005), which also includes work by Billy Collins, Rita Dove, and James Tate. He was a quarter-finalist in the 2002 Lyric Recovery Festival and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. He was one of three writers selected to participate in the inaugural Visible Word Project, a collaboration of literary and visual artists sponsored by The Center for the Performing Arts at DeBaun Auditorium. Allegretti has been a featured reader at the Writer’s Voice Series at the West Side Y, the Museum of the City of New York, CB’s Gallery, Cornelia Street Café, the Ear Inn, the Center for Book Arts, the Paterson Museum and scores of other venues. Of his second collection, Father Silicon, D. Nurkse said, “These poems are architectures, webs and prayers. Their volatility and wit never harden into irony. Read ‘Anointing of the Sick’ and then ‘Poem for the Apocalypse’ for the range this book travels. Father Silicon is a challenge and a thrill.”
