Jennifer Militello is the author of the poetry collection The Pact (Tupelo Press/Shearsman Books, 2021) and the memoir Knock Wood, winner of the Dzanc Nonfiction Prize (Dzanc Books, 2019), as well as four additional collections of poetry including A Camouflage of Specimens and Garments (Tupelo Press, 2016), called “positively bewitching” by Publishers Weekly, and Body Thesaurus (Tupelo Press, 2013), named one of the top books of 2013 by Best American Poetry. Her work has appeared in American Poetry Review, Best American Poetry, Best New Poets, The Nation, The New Republic, The Paris Review, POETRY, and Tin House. She teaches in the MFA program at New England College, and can be found at https://jennifermilitello.com.
A native of Missouri, Kelly M. Flynn teaches English at Phillips Exeter Academy, where she also directs theatre and plays various keyboard instruments. Her poetry can be found in The Graham House Poetry Review, The Collected Explosive Magazine, and the New Hampshire Poet Showcase (Walter Butts edition). Kelly has read at the Word Barn and the Blacksmith House, and she is delighted to add the Hoot to those venues. She sends a big shout-out to all poets, poetry fans, and her chocolate Lab Pete, the genius loci of her writing space and her muddy muse.
