1.)  Luca Artioli was born in Mantova in 1976, where he still lives.
He was the creator and co-founder of the Confraternita dell' "Uva," a
group of 25 writers from Mantova, Modena, and Como.  He’s currently a
member of the "Movement from the Underground," a literary group for
the union of the arts, based in Montichiari (BS).

His official website is http://www.lucaartioli.it/

His books are "Fragili Apparenze" (Apparent fragilities), published by
TCM Editions, Mantova in 2005; and "Suture" (Sutures), published by
Edizioni Fara in 2011.

2.)  Fabio Barcellandi was born in Brescia in 1968.  He is part of the
group of poets and artists that "quickens" the literary meetings at
the coffee bar Galeter in Montichiari, where he has performed on
numerous occasions, from his tentative beginnings to the latest
missives.  He is from under the earth.  What they say of him is that
he walks hand in hand with death, whistling.

He has published two collections of poems :

"Parole alate" (Winged words), published by Cicorivolta editions 2007;
and "Nero, l'inchiostro" (Black Ink), published by Montag editions in

3.)  Andrea Garbin lives and works in the province of Mantova.  He has
published his poetry as "Il senso della musa" (The sense of the Muse),
Aletti 2007; and "Latex," published by Fara in 2009.  His
short-stories are included in the anthologies "Per natale non esco"
(For Christmas I don’t go out), published by TranseuropaLibri 2008)
and "Il rumore degli occhi" (The noise of the eyes), published by
Edizioni Creativa in 2009.

4.)  Dave Lordan's latest collection is "Invitation to a Sacrifice"
(Salmon Poetry 2010) which was called by THE IRISH TIMES "an act of
cultural resistance, as brilliant on the page as it must surely be in
performance."  Eigse Riada theatre company produced his first play,
"Jo Bangles," at the Mill Theatre, Dundrum in 2010.  Forthcoming are
"Assassin for Higher" from Wurm Press in November 2011 and his first
collection of short stories "Out of My Head" due out from Salmon
Publishing in Summer 2012.
