JEN BESEMER works with words, actions and images to expose hidden relationships (and discover new ones) between and within those media. “Misusing” text, processes and products to create camouflaged or hybrid forms, Jen comments on the entrenched systems of contemporary life and the unresolved contradictions they generate. Recent work appears this winter and spring in Artifice, at and, and at The Fridge in Washington DC.

NICHOLAS ALEXANDER HAYES is the author of NIV: 39 & 27 (BlazeVOX [books]). His work has appeared in many journals and a few anthologies, including Word Riot, Bloom, and Madder Love: Queer Men and the Precincts of Surrealism. He is currently working on contemporary retellings of Greek Myths with Terri Griffith.

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.
