Timothy Bradford’s poetry has most recently appeared in ecopoetics, Drunken Boat and 42 Opus, and is forthcoming in No Tell Motel. In 2005, he received the Koret Foundation’s Young Writer on Jewish Themes Award for his novel-in-progress, based on the history of the Vélodrome d’Hiver in Paris, and was a guest lecturer at Stanford University. From 2007 to 2009, he was a researcher with the Institut d’Histoire du Temps Présent in France. Currently he teaches English at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Christophe Lamiot Enos lives in Paris after spending 14 years in the US where he taught French literature at UC Berkeley and at Rutgers. He is currently maître de conférences at the University of Rouen. His many publications include Des pommes et des oranges, Californie I – Berkeley (Flammarion, Paris, 2000); Sitôt Elke, illusion, récit en poèmes (Flammarion, Paris, 2003); Albany, Des pommes et des oranges, Californie II (Flammarion 2006); as well as his most recent part-French-part-English book 1985-1981 (Flammarion, Paris, 2010). His poetry is an exploration of lived experience, of the contours of emotion and the internal workings of the quotidian.

Nathan Thompson was born in Cornwall and studied at the University of Exeter, where he later lectured in musicology. He now lives on the island of Jersey and runs the PoAttic reading series at the Jersey Opera House. His first collection, the arboretum towards the beginning, was published by Shearsman Books in 2008 and Holes in the Map appeared from Oystercatcher Press in 2010. A Haunting, a collection of lipogram sonnets, is due from Gratton Street Irregulars later this year.
