Poet and doghouse-bass player Johnny Bender follows the Beat tradition in attitude but also enjoys fiddling with form. He lives with his longtime wife, Rene, near the Box Springs Mountains in beautiful Moreno Valley. A short workshop he took with Allen Ginsberg at Naropa Institute in summer 1982 inspired Bender to start the poetry performance troupe “Poets in Distress” that same year.
Cati Porter is a poet, editor, essayist, arts administrator, wife, mother, daughter, friend. She is the author of nine books and chapbooks, most recently The Body at a Loss and Slow Unraveling with Living Ghosts, a collaborative chapbook with Johnny Bender and illustrated by Steve "Lu" Lossing. Her poems, and essays have been published in a variety of venues both in print and online. She now lives in Riverside where she has been sheltering in place since March 19, 2020.
