Rebecca Ketchum lives in Brooklyn. If you saw her there she would probably be baking, dancing, or surfing the net. Her cake company is named CAKED and she is currently dancing with Racoco Productions and Movementpants. Rebecca’s choreography for this performance was inspired by her dear friend Dottie’s magical poetry. She feels honored to be a part of this bedroom reading and to have worked with such great artists as Dorothea Lasky and Nathan Kosla.
Noelle Kocot is the author of three books: 4 (2001) and The Raving Fortune (2004), both from Four Way Books and Poem for the End of Time (2006) from Wave Books. She is the recipient of awards from The Academy of American Poets, The NEA, The Fund for Poetry, and The American Poetry Review. She lives in Brooklyn.
Nathan Kosla is a nice boy who lives just across the river from New York City and loves to dance and sing and play and might be getting a dog soon.
Dorothea Lasky was born in St. Louis in 1978. Her poems have appeared in Crowd, 6×6, Boston Review, Delmar, Phoebe, Filter, Knock, Drill, Lungfull!, and Carve, among others. She is the author of three chapbooks: The Hatmaker’s Wife (Braincase Press, 2006), Art (H_NGM_N Press, 2005), and Alphabets and Portraits (Anchorite Press, 2004). She has been educated at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, Harvard University, and Washington University. Currently, she lives in Philadelphia, where she edits the Katalanché Press chapbook series (along with poet, Michael Carr) and is pursuing her doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania.
