MEET YOUR JUDGES

Brenda Levy Tate (Nova Scotia, Canada)

   Brenda Levy Tate lives in southwest Nova Scotia just up the road from
   the Tusket Falls power dam. Because she especially loves her camera,
   motley assortment of books and unwieldy fossil collection, Brenda's
   house is slowly collapsing under boxes and shelves crammed with
   photos, flea-market hardcovers and rocks. Her work has appeared in
   numerous print publications and anthologies, most recently Lilith and
   Postcards from Eve (Fortunate Childe Publications, 2009 & 2010
   respectively). She is a current Pushcart nominee for one of the poems
   included in Lilith. She is also a contributor to online journals,
   including Soundzine (June 2009) and Contemporary American Voices
   (August 2009 & June 2010) and was a featured poet with Triggerfish
   Critical Review (December 2009). Her books include Cleansing (Rising
   Tide 2003) and the chapbook Beeline (Lopside Press 2007). Brenda may
   also be heard reading her poetry and singing on YouTube under the
   username Silharima. In her former life, she taught senior high school
   in Yarmouth, NS.

Jim Knowles (Andover, Massachusetts)

   Jim Knowles is a poet, engineer, and artist from Andover, Mass. His
   work has appeared places like Mipoesias Best of Cafe Cafe, From East
   to West, Durable Goods, and "The Ranfury Review". He was a finalist
   in the 2008 Poetry Superhighway Contest, first in the 2009 PSH
   Contest, and won honorable mention (2nd) in the 2010 Inkwell Poetry
   Competition. He likes to explore as a reader, and to be surprised.

Sian Lindsey (County Donegal, Ireland)

   Sian Lindsey is a poet who recently retired from the US Air Force and
   is now in the final course of her MFA in Creative Writing. She has
   three children (two grown and a nine-year-old at home), two cats, and
   a husband who deploys to Afghanistan every other year. In those years
   Sian and her youngest son spend their time at home in County Donegal,
   Ireland, where life is beautiful, slow, and happy. In the intervening
   years she is captive in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she remains
   a slave to the air conditioner between April and October. Sian finds
   inspiration for her poetry in the wild green of Ireland, in the
   separation from her husband every other year, and in the constant
   chaos of moving from place to place, trying to bring and keep her
   family together. She is 44 years old and loves gadgets, technology,
   travelling, reading, writing, and being outdoors (when it's 70F or
   less).
