    Martha Greenwald’s collection, “Other Prohibited Items,” was a winner of The Mississippi Review 2010 Poetry Series. Her poems have appeared in several journals including Best New Poets 2008, Slate, The Threepenny Review, Poetry, The Sycamore Review and Shenandoah. A former Wallace Stegner Fellow, she has received awards from the arts councils of North Carolina and Kentucky. She currently teaches at the University of Louisville.

    Gloria Mindock is editor of Cervena Barva Press and the Istanbul Literary Review, an online journal based in Istanbul, Turkey. Gloria will be reading from her new book, Nothing Divine Here (U Soku Stampa). She is also the author of La Portile Raiului (Ars Longa Press, 2010, Romania) translated by Flavia Cosma and Blood Soaked Dresses (Ibbetson Street Press, 2007). She has had numerous publications including Poet Lore, River Styx, Phoebe, Blackbox, Poesia, Bogg, Ibbetson, WHLR, Arabesques, UNU: Revista de Cultura, Citadela, Aurora, Generacion Abierta and two chapbooks, Doppelganger (S. Press) and Oh Angel (U Šoku Štampa). From 1984-1994, Gloria was editor of the Boston Literary Review/BLuR. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, St. Botolph Award, and was awarded a fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council distributed by the Somerville Arts Council.

    Catherine Sasanov’s third book of poems, Had Slaves, won the 2009 Sentence Book Award and was a finalist that same year for the National Poetry Series. She is grateful to Cervena Barva Press for being the first to recognize these poems, publishing a chapbook version of some them, Tara, in 2008. Catherine’s other works include Traditions of Bread and Violence (Four Way Books), All the Blood Tethers (Northeastern University Press), and the libretto for Las Horas de Belén: A Book of Hours, commissioned by Mabou Mines theater company. She was recently awarded an artist's support grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation; it will support a road trip in April to investigate how slavery has been remembered and misremembered in American culture.
