Tenaya Darlington is the managing editor for Beloit Fiction Journal. Her work has appeared in Scribner's Best of the Fiction Workshops 1998 and In Brief: Short Takes on the Personal, as well as in journals such as the Chronicle of Higher Education, Atlanta Review, and Southern Poetry Review. Her new collection of poetry, Madame Deluxe, was chosen as the winner of the 2000 National Poetry Series by Lawson Fusao Inada, who says "Tenaya Darlington, Madame Deluxe, is a truthsayer with attitude and an agenda to boot. She's a charmer, an alarmer, a kick in the pants, a hoot. She embodies generations, furthers traditions; it's heartening to know what poetry can still do."

Anne Marie Macari was born in 1955 and grew up in Queens, New York. She obtained her BA from Oberlin College, and her MFA from Sarah Lawrence College. Her book Ivory Cradle received the 2000 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize and will appear in the fall of 2000. She has published in various magazines such as Field, TriQuarterly, The Ohio Review, The Cortland Review, and others. Her poems also appeared in the anthology Models of the Universe, published by Oberlin College Press. She lives in Lambertville, NJ with her three sons.
