Featuring the Beautiful, Amazing:

AIMEE DELONG - a writer of fiction and poetry and other random, yet intensely justifiable nonsense. She technically lives in Brooklyn, although theoretically lives in Manhattan. Her work can be seen in such places as 3 AM, Thieves Jargon, and Everyday Genius. It can also actually be seen in these places. She won a poetry prize, and that was awesome. Although it's starting to be far enough in the past that it would be silly to say anymore about it. Life lessons include, but are not limited to: A shit-tastic year makes for grand lucidity. There's more to this bio than meets the eye here www.aimeedelong.com

FAUX MAUX. Lifetime performance artist/actress/ playwright and writer, she took her one-woman play, Lil' Red and few burlesque acts to Holland and Scotland. Now, she does the occasional stand-up and continues to create plays, perform outragous acts of art, and creative havoc here in New York City.

JEANANN VERLEE is a poet, editor, and former punk rocker who collects tattoos and winks at boys. Author of “Racing Hummingbirds,” recipient of the Independent Publisher Book Award Silver Medal in Poetry, her work also appears in The New York Quarterly, FRiGG, kill author, and PANK, among others. Verlee has twice been nominated for a Puschart Prize, is Poetry Editor for Union Station Literary Magazine, serves as curator of the Urbana Poetry Slam reading series at Bowery Poetry Club, and is an acclaimed performance poet with a variety of local and national poetry slam tiles. She lives in New York City with a pair of origami lovebirds. She believes in you.

Tonite she will perform her new one-woman play,"The Adventures of Mademoiselle How Many Times," a new work that is coming to a NY venue soon. It's a comedy about American terrorism.
