MATT HART is the author of four published books of poetry, most recently Sermons and Lectures Both Blank and Relentless (Typecast Publishing, 2012), as well as several chapbooks. He is the co-founder and editor of Forklift Ohio: A Journal of Poetry, Cooking, & Light Industrial Safety. Columbia Poetry Review called his 2011 book, Light-headed, “graceful, mad, euphoric, sobering and challengingly enthusiastic about life,” and called his poetry as a whole, “straddling the line between the domestic and the animal, which he configures eloquently as the holy punk spirit with kids approaching 40.” He lives in Cincinnati, OH, and is currently the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s Poet-in-Resistance.

NATE PRITTS is the author of six books of poetry, most recently Right Now More Than Ever (H_NGM_N BKS, 2013), and is also a comics artist. He founded H_NGM_N, an online journal and small press, in 2001, and currently serves it as Director & Prime Architect. Publishers Weekly described his fifth book, Sweet Nothing, as “both baroque and irreverent, banal and romantic, his poems […] arrive at as place of vulnerability and sincerity.” Poetry Magazine called his third book, The Wonderfull Yeare, “rich, vivid, intimate, & somewhat troubled.” He currently lives in Rochester, NY.

Silo City Reading Series is curated by Noah Falck (JBLC Education Director)
