About the Artists:
Tsering Wangmo Dhompa grew up in the Tibetan communities in India and Nepal. She received her MA from University of Massachussetts and her MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. Tsering is the author of two chapbooks, In Writing the Names, (A.bacus, Potes & Poets Press) and Recurring Gestures (Tangram Press). Her work has appeared in the Atlanta Review, Boston Review, Mid American Review, 26, Zyzzyva and others. Tsering lives in San Francisco.
Dennis M. Somera writes his way out of his head into the rest of his body, hoping his ideas, concepts, words, text, writing find collaborators in the audience, of course, and artists of every discipline to further extend him into the world. He is currently fleshing out as many ideas as possible as an MFA candidate in poetry at Mills College in Oakland.
