Singer/songwriter Sarah Elizabeth has performed in eighteen countries but has called Kentucky home all her life. Sarah plays eleven instruments and her work appears on fifteen albums.  Her sound is deeply rooted in the Kentucky hills, with “a voice sweeter than a honeysuckle vine in spring and old as the current of the Ohio River.”  Her latest album Don’t Die Yet, accompanied by Grammy Nominated Native American musician Tony Redhouse, was recorded upon returning from the Sacred Black Hills of South Dakota.
Blas Falconer is the author of A Question of Gravity and Light (University of Arizona Press 2007) and co-editor of two anthologies: Mentor and Muse: Essays from Poets to Poets (forthcoming SIU Press 2010) and a collection of essays on contemporary Latina/o literature (University of Arizona Press 2011). He teaches at Austin Peay State University, where he serves as the poetry editor of Zone 3 Magazine/Zone 3 Press.
Paul Guest is the author of three collections of poetry, most recently My Index of Slightly Horrifying Knowledge.  Ecco will publish his memoir, One More Theory About Happiness, in 2010.  A Whiting Award recipient, he lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
