Steve McCaffery is the author and coauthor of more than thirty-five volumes of poetry and criticism.

A native of England, McCaffery lives and teaches in Buffalo, NY, where he is the David Gray Chair of Poetry and Letters and Director of the UB Poetics Program.

Karen Mac Cormack is the author of more than a dozen books of poetry, most recently
AGAINST WHITE (Veer Books, London, 2013). Her poems have appeared in anthologies including Moving Borders, Out of Everywhere, Another Language, and Prismatic Publics, and her work has been translated into French, Portuguese, Swedish, and Norwegian. Of dual Canadian/British citizenship, she lived in Toronto for many years, and currently lives Buffalo where she teaches at the State University.
