Todd Boss's poetry collections are Pitch (W. W. Norton, 2012) and Yellowrocket (2008), both Midwest Bookseller’s Choice award selections. His 35-part “Fragments for the 35W Bridge” was part of a collaboration with Swedish artist Maja Spasova called “Project 35W,” an August 2012 art installation on the Mississippi River. Panic, Todd’s verse retelling of Knut Hamsun’s 1894 novella Pan, will premiere as a one-man opera in late 2013, arranged by Boston Conservatory’s Andy Vores. Todd is a founding co-director of Motionpoems, a leading producer of poetry films now collaborating with Copper Canyon, Milkweed, Graywolf and other fine publishers.
Joseph Voth's first volume of poetry, Living with Noise, was published by NorthShore Press in 2011. His work has been published in Epoch, South Carolina Review, Connecticut Review, and numerous other journals. After teaching at San Diego State for ten years, he embarked on a classic and melodramatic sojourn in New York City, where he suffered and completed a second manuscript before returning to teach in CA at College of the Canyons in LA.
