ADAM GOLASKI darns his daughter’s socks. He wrote Color Plates (Rose Metal Press). He wrote Worse Than Myself (Raw Dog Screaming Press). He sleeps on the back of a bumble bee. He gnawed his own leg off. Adam is the co-founder of Flim Forum Press, a press he co-founded. Adam listens to Paul McCartney’s “Comin’ Up” on repeat hoping the cosmos will reveal itself and it does. Little Stories is his blog. This is the combination of search terms that hypnotized Google: “Adam + Golaski + Little + Stories.”

JENNIFER KARMIN's text-sound epic, Aaaaaaaaaaalice, was published by Flim Forum Press in 2010. She curates the Red Rover Series and is co-founder of the public art group Anti Gravity Surprise. Her multidisciplinary projects have been presented at festivals, artist-run spaces, community centers, and on city streets across the U.S., Japan, and Kenya. A proud member of the Dusie Kollektiv, she is the author of the Dusie chapbook Evacuated: Disembodying Katrina. Walking Poem, a collaborative street project, is featured online at How2. In Chicago, Jennifer teaches creative writing to immigrants at Truman College and works as a Poet-in-Residence for the public schools.
