Born in New York, Ed Coletti moved to Santa Rosa when he returned from the Vietnam War.  A graduate of Georgetown University, he completed an MFA in creative writing under Robert Creeley at San Francisco State University.  He has a long publishing history; most recently he published Jazz Gods in 2010 and his latest collection of poems When Hearts Outlive Minds was published in 2011 by Conflux Press.

David Beckman has written poetry, plays and novels, and has read his work in numerous Bay Area venues including Maxine Hong Kingston’s 2006 peace event in Santa Rosa.  His chapbook “Times Three” appeared in 2008.
