Hillary Juster has black hair and soon a BA in interdisciplinary studies from NYU as well. She won 1st place in a poetry competition in 8th grade, won the Lamont Younger Poet’s Prize at 15, but hasn’t won much since. As a compliment to reading poetry, she likes to engage members of audience with sculpture, lighting, photography, and touching. In her spare time, she edits the old college lit mag, The Minetta Review, or is about to do something pretty impressive. Check out her work in the forthcoming The Physical Poets Home Library.

Gregory Laynor has been teaching & studying at Temple University in Philadelphia. His reading of Gertrude Stein’s The Making of Americans appears on UbuWeb. He does a blog at academicpoetry.com. He is co-editing for Chax Press the collected writings of the Philadelphia poet Gil Ott.
