Thinking about John reminded me to look up some of my other authors from the first three issues.
- Mohit Bhasin, whom I served badly with a poor choice of anatomical clip art next to his poem in the first issue, appears to have kept up his dual pursuit of literature and medicine.
- Laura MacCleery is at Public Citizens Congress Watch.
- Kevin Corrie, our poetry editor, appears to have landed at Planting Seeds Records (if Google is to be believed).
- Jennifer Scappettone is on the faculty at the University of Chicago (though she apparently almost didn’t get into poetry thanks to the environment at UVa). She also apparently contributes to the group blog A Tonalist Notes, though I’m still looking for her posts—it’s a large team.
- Paul Bibeau’s book Sundays with Vlad: From Pennsylvania to Transylvania, One Man’s Quest to Live in the World of the Undead was published last month. He’s freelanced for a variety of publications and is now the only person I know to have been both an advice columnist at Mademoiselle and an editor at Maxim. I plan to check out the podcast of his speech to the Jefferson Society at my earliest opportunity.
- April Thompson is a freelance writer and editor.
- Rebecca Dunham is on the faculty at the University of Northern Iowa; her collection The Miniature Room was a T.S. Eliot Prize Winner in 2006.
- Carol Golemboski is on the faculty at the Visual Arts Department at UC Denver.
- Lailee Mendelson works at Emory and had an article published in Salon a while back.
- Tyler Magill is still writing.
- Poulson Reed is the sub-dean at St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral in Denver, Colorado.
- Jamie Gaughran-Perez is the editor of a zine called RockHeals, among other activities.
- Kim Seelinger has been practicing immigration law and teaching.
- David Sherwin is an art director, photographer, and musician in Seattle.
- Stacy Wray blogs, writes poetry, and is one half of the acoustic band Tumble.
