Matvei Yankelevich, Elizabeth Robinson, TaraShea Nesbit & Brian Buckley read for your pleasure!

Matvei Yankelevich is the author of Alpha Donut (United Artists Books, 2012), Bending at the Elbow (Minutes Books, 2011), and Boris by the Sea (Octopus Books, 2009). He is the translator and editor of Today I Wrote Nothing: The Selected Writings of Daniil Kharms (Overlook, 2007). His translations of Russian poetry have appeared in many periodicals including Harpers, New American Writing, Poetry, and The New Yorker, and in several anthologies including *OBERIU: An Anthology of Russian Absurdism* (Northwestern) and *Night Wraps the Sky: Writings by and about Mayakovsky* (FSG). He is one of the founding editors of Ugly Duckling Presse, where he edits the Eastern European Poets Series; and a member of the writing faculty of the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College.

Elizabeth Robinson's most recent book is Three Novels (a poetry collection) from Omnidawn. Counterpart is forthcoming from Ahsahta Press later this year. She is the Hugo Fellow at the University of Montana this spring and co-editor with Colleen Lookingbill of the new anthology As if it Fell from the Sun: ten years of women's writing.

TaraShea Nesbit's prose, poetry and reviews have appeared in Quarterly West, The Iowa Review, Hayden's Ferry Review, The Laurel Review, Horse Less Review and elsewhere. She is a doctoral student at the University of Denver.

Brian Buckley is from the neighborhood of West Roxbury in Boston, Massachusetts. West Roxbury was the home of Brook Farm, a utopian community established in 1841 where Nathaniel Hawthorne spent some time and later penned The Blithedale Romance, based on his time there. Married to Kate Hunter, father of Norah and Clare, friend of Oren Silverman, Brian shucks poetry books the way Molly Malone shucked cockles and mussels in Dublin fair city and he befriends poets for a living. Not a bad reincarnation, eh? Each morning Brian arises, hops on the SKIP bus, and goes to Innisfree.
