Kate Foley lives in Amsterdam and Suffolk, where she writes, edits, performs and leads workshops. Her latest full collection One Window North was published by Shoestring Press in 2012.

British-born  Donald Gardner (London 1938) lives in Holland and works as a translator. His debut as a performance poet was in the 1960s in New York, taking part, for instance, in the legendary 1967 reading at the East Village Theater. He has translated work by Octavio Paz and Ernesto Cardenal. Back in London, he founded a group of street poets, Guerilla Poets in 1968. In the 1970s he was a street actor with the London group of the Living Theater. He has made a number of one-man performances of his poetry. One of these, “Oedipus on Ice” (1982)  was an entirely new performance every time he presented it.
