Lauren Camp is the author of four books of poems, including One Hundred Hungers, which won the Dorset Prize, and Turquoise Door, finalist for the New Mexico-Arizona Book Award. Her next book, Took House, will be out from Tupelo Press this spring. She has received fellowships from Black Earth Institute and The Taft-Nicholson Center, and finalist citations for the Arab American Book Award and the Housatonic Book Award. Her poems have been translated into Mandarin, Turkish, Spanish and Arabic. She lives in northern New Mexico, where she teaches creative writing to people of all ages.
Nate Maxson is a poet and performance artist. He is the author of several collections of poetry including The Age Of Jive, and The Whisper Gallery. He has had writing published in numerous magazines including Drunk Monkeys, Quiddity, and Anti-Heroin Chic. A long time resident of Albuquerque, he has spent the last few years not performing as regularly or as furiously as he once did but fear not: he's getting back on the horse. Come see him and the metaphorical horse at Kaktus Brewery for a fabulous high diving act of poetry, mischief and mayhem.
