Tony Towle began writing poetry in 1960 and became associated with the New York School of Poetry three years later, when he took poetry workshops with Kenneth Koch and Frank O’Hara. His first major collection, North, was the Frank O’Hara Award for 1970 and published by Columbia University Press. (See Publications for a complete list of books.) He is the author of fifteen volumes of poetry, and he has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Poets Foundation, and the Ingram Merrill Foundation, among other prizes and honors.
Michael McDonough has published poems in Off the Coast, The Agriculture Reader, pax americana, and elsewhere. He holds an MFA in Poetry from The New School and a BA in American Studies from Bard College. He is the author of Radiocartography (Straw Gate Books, 2013), as well as three chapbooks and an audio CD.
