PATRICK O’NEIL spends numerous hours scribbling murky recollections on scraps of paper and cocktail napkins and then never remembers to read them. Antioch University Los Angeles awarded him a Masters Degree in Creative Writing. Mr. O’Neil posts bits of writing on his Blog: Full Blue Moon Dementia, while a few literary journals – Blood Orange Review, The Sylvan Echo, and AUDEMUS, have seen fit to publish his work.

BUCKY SINISTER is a street poet who has published three collections of prose and poetry, most recently Whiskey and Robots. His work can be found in The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry. He is also a stand-up comic who performs around San Francisco and beyond. He is the author of the punk rock self-help recovery book Get Up!, and hosted the legendary and unruly Monday night poetry open mic at the Chameleon bar in the 1990s.
