Ellen S. Jaffe has written many books, including her book of poetry Water Children, the young adult novel Feast of Lights, and Writing Your Way: Creating a Personal Journal. Her second poetry collection Skinny-Dipping with the Muse was published by Guernica editions, and is about the writer’s experience of diving ‘into the destructive element’.

Michael Mirolla has written two novels: the recently-released The Facility, and Berlin (a 2010 Bressani Prize winner and finalist for the 2009 Indie Book and National Best Books Awards); two short story collections – The Formal Logic of Emotion (recently translated into Italian and released in 2010) and Hothouse Loves & Other Tales; and two poetry collections: the English-Italian Interstellar Distances/Distanze Interstellari, and Light And Time.

Irene Marques is the author of several English-language poetry collections, including Wearing Glasses of Water, The Perfect Unraveling of the Spirit, and The Circular Incantation: An Exercise in Loss and Findings. She has also written a Portuguese short story collection, Habitando na Metáfora do Tempo: Crónicas Desejadas (Dwelling in the Metaphor of Time: Desired Chronicles).
