George Tysh has combined innovative writing with community engagement on grass-roots and institutional levels for more than 50 years. His work also reflects a keen interest in music, visual culture and world literature. Tysh’s numerous volumes of poetry, including The Slip (2015), The Imperfect (2010) and Dream Sites: A Visual Essay (1998), have been praised for combining “rigor, artifice, and intuition,” in the words of Brooklyn Rail reviewer Jeffrey Cyphers Wright.
Stacey MacLeod is the lyricist, lead singer, and guitar player for Detroit’s avant-garde duo, Dear Darkness. Her poetry manifests as she takes long walks and listens to music on headphones. Her poems are humorous, affectionately marrying rock n roll to nature. She plans to publish a short-run collection of her poems and photography entitled “Strange Noise”.
John Wright is a worker in a slingshot factory, a music teacher, and English adjunct faculty. His work has been featured in the PBS series “United States of Poetry”, the Harper Collins anthology, Earth Prayers, Bombay Gin, Electricues, and the Trolleyville Times.
