Mary Alexandra Agner writes of dead women, telescopes, and secrets. Her poetry is published in Iron Horse Literary Review, Boxcar Poetry Review, North American Review, and others.

Carolyn Jean Smith grew up in New York City and studied recorder there as a child. She moved to Boston in 1983 to pursue a BS in Biology at MIT. After working in research for several years, she returned to school to pursue her lifelong love of recorder. She completed her Master of Music degree in Early Music at the Longy School of Music in May 1999. She has performed with Stambandet, Serendipity and Cantata a Trois, and is currently a member of Quilisma. Carolyn has studied with Ford Weisberg, Sonja Lindblad and John Tyson, and has done masterclasses with Michael Lynn, Gerd Lunenberger, John Tyson and Paul Leenhouts. She has participated in the Oberlin Performance Institute and the International Baroque Institute at Longy, has performed in the Society for Historically Informed Performance (SoHIP) Concert Series, the MIT Chapel Concert Series, the Noon Concert Series at Cathedral Church of St. Paul, the Gardner Museum Concert Series, and at First Night Boston, and has been heard on WGBH's Morning Pro Musica with St?mbandet. She can be heard on Nordic Voices, a CD released in 1997 by Stambandet under the Nordic Sounds label.

Somerville resident Julia Tenney is still recovering from a degree in Art History. After decades of vague praise for her "serious" work, and gushing approval of her doodles, she's begun to catch on. She is making slow progress with a "serious" tarot deck, but within months managed to complete a full deck of Surly Pink Bunnies.
