GEOF HUTH writes frequently about poetry, visual and otherwise, at his blog, dbqp: visualizing poetics. His poetry consists of one-word poems, poems written in unintelligible scripts, poems painted onto canvas or assembled within boxes, poems sung and audio- or videorecorded during the moments of their creation, poems created within nature and left to disappear back into it, and even syntactic text separated into lines. Each of his poetry performances attempts to use his entire body fully to examine the possible extent of poetry. His latest book is "ntst: the collected pwoermds of geof huth", a book of 775 one-word poems.

STEVE ROGGENBUCK, i started writing in 2006 as a poet, and now i’m not sure if i’m a poet or something else. i am 23 years old and i live in chicago. i grew up in rural michigan and played in a death metal band in high school. i am a vegan and a buddhist. everything i make is available free online, self-published into the public domain. i have two short books: one of msn messenger excerpts set in large helvetica, "DOWNLOAD HELVETICA FOR FREE.COM", and one of minimalist plain-text poems, "i am like october when i am dead".

RED ROVER SERIES is curated by Laura Goldstein and Jennifer Karmin. Each event is designed as a reading experiment with participation by local, national, and international writers, artists, and performers. The series was founded in 2005 by Amina Cain and Jennifer Karmin.
