Verga has appeared in over 100 poetry publications; he is widely anthologized and translated. His seventh book is Long & Short, including The Street in Your Head (2016). He is a former owner of The Cornelia Street Café, where his many literary and performance programs (1997-2015) created a home for both poets & audiences.

Karen Hildebrand is the author of Crossing Pleasure Avenue (Indolent Books, 2018). Her work has appeared in many journals and was adapted for a play, “The Old In and Out,” produced in NYC by Three Rooms Press.

John Marcus Powell is poet who is also an actor. Born in Wales, he has lived in London, Paris, Rome, Algeria, and for the past twenty-five years in New York City. His career as an actor spans British Rep, British Soaps (as a doctor on ITV’s Emergency Ward 10), American Horror Movies (Metamorphosis—The Alien Factor, Escape From Safe Haven & Mob Queen), London’s West-End (Zigger-Zagger & Ian McKellan’s understudy in The Promise), Off-Broadway (The Comedians & Perfect Crime), and Off-Off-Broadway (Hedda Gabler & The Visit). He was directed by Harold Pinter in Robert Shaw’s The Man In The Glass Booth in London. Pinter encouraged his writing, and helped him get his short stories published in Joe McCrindle’s Transatlantic Review. He is the author of ‘Glorious Babe ( Exot Books 2014 ) ‘Veil On, Veil Off ‘ ( Exot Books 2018 ) and the chapbook, Loony Lover (Exot Books, 2012), and performs his poetry extensively in New York City. As a poet he tap-dances to the rhythms of verse and prose, boogies through transgression, jives with socialism, square-dances with queerness, and flirts with any anarchic poet he’s ever met—particularly Whitman, Shakespeare, Rimbaud, and Dickenson.
