Mark Fogarty believes, like Shelley, that poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world. He is a poet, musician, and journalist from Rutherford, NJ. He is the managing editor of The Rutherford Red Wheelbarrow and emcees the monthly poetry/music reading at GainVille Café, also in Rutherford. He has read his poetry extensively in New York and New Jersey and has had poetry in more than 20 publications. He is the author of six books of poetry from White Chickens Press: Myshkin’s Blues, Peninsula, Phantom Engineer, Sun Nets, Continuum: The Jaco Poems and The Tall Women’s Dance. He has also published broadsheets of two individual poems: “Wedding Song” and “A Prayer for Jordan.”

George Pereny has been involved in the metro poetry/music scene since 1975.  He has been published in numerous publications, including The Aquarian, and The English Journal, nominated for the Pushcart and Editor’s Choice prizes, received two Honorable Mentions from the World of Poetry, and a featured poet in Poetry mag. com.  Pereny also appears in 5 editions of The Rutherford Red Wheelbarrow, and has published 5 books, and 8 cd compilations with 150 songs available on You Tube, iTunes, Spotify and other sites.  The founder of The Pompton Poets, Pereny has been a rock ’n roller, surfer, inner-city high school teacher, martial artist, rapper—and through it all, a poet.
