  Notes on Contributors

Selected Contributors:

Olufunke Grace Bankole is a first-generation American of Nigerian parentage, a graduate of Harvard Law School who left law to write. Work has appeared in Michigan Quarterly Review, New Letters and The Antioch Review. She is recipient of the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation grant, in support of her novel-in-progress.

Catherine Harris was born in Sydney but now divides her time between Australia and the USA. Her fiction and essays have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies in Australia, England and North America. A collection of her stories, Like Being a Wife, will be published by Vintage (Australia) in 2010.

N. Josephs is the pen name of a British subject, permanent resident of Israel since the mind-20th century. By profession she is translator-editor-librarian, and mother of five. Other than Stand, her work has appeared in The Guardian, arc --the Isreali journal of writers in English, and broadcast on the BBC World Service. She still dreams of coexistence (which is why she lives in Haifa), of the restoration of environmental sanity, and of an end to 'mere anarchy'.

Julio Martinez Mesanzais the most prominent of a generation of Spanish poets who began publishing in the 1980s. His books include Europa, Las trincheras (The Trenches), Entre el muro y el foso (Between the Wall and the Ditch) and an edition of new and selected poems in 2007.

Bibhu Padhi has published six books of poetry, Choosing a Place being his most recent. His seventh, Migratory Days, is scheduled for early 2011. His poems have appeared in distinguished magazines throughout the English speaking world. He lives in Dhenkanal, a small hilly town in central Orissa.

Robert Vas Dias has published eight collections in the UK and USA, the latest of which is Leaping Down to Earth (2008), with images by the British artists Stephen Chambers and Tom Hammick, and The Lascaux Variations (2009), with images by John Wright.
