Mairéad Byrne emigrated from Ireland to the United States in 1994. Her poetry collections include Nelson & The Huruburu Bird (Wild Honey Press 2003), Talk Poetry (Miami University Press 2007), SOS Poetry (/ubu Editions 2007), The Best of (What's Left of) Heaven (Publishing Genius 2010), You Have to Laugh (Barrow Street 2013), and Famosa na sua cabeça, selected and translated by Dirceu Villa (São Paulo: Dobra Editorial 2015).

Matthew Welton lectures in creative writing at the University of Nottingham. His writing practice includes collaborations with musicians, visual artists and other writers. His interest in poetry has to do with explorations of the sounds of words and the possibilities of repetition. He has published three books with Carcanet: The Book of Matthew (2003), 'We needed coffee but…' (2009) and The Number Poems (2016).

Alice Lyons, the curator of Poetry Now, is the author of three collections of poetry, most recently The Breadbasket of Europe (Veer Books, 2016).
