Michael Hanner — Toni Hanner — Anita Sullivan

Michael Hanner is an architect from Chicago.  His poetry has appeared in Gargoyle, Rhino, MARGIE, Nimrod, Southern Humanities Review, Timberline Review, and others.  His recent chapbooks are The Architecture of Holland, Confessions of Autumn, Avenida Uriburu & août.  His books are Vivaldi, 2013; October, 2015; Adriatica, 2016 and Le Bugue, Black Périgord & Beyond, (a guidebook) 2016.  Other interests are gardening, irony, English croquet, French cooking, Argentine tango and photography.  He lives in Eugene with his wife, poet Toni Hanner.  He has neither a dog named Spam, nor a cat named Mehitabel.

Toni Hanner is really sick of writing third-person biographical notices like this one.  She is a poet and is not used to having to think hard or make sense.  She’s written some books, which you can buy if you like, or just ask her nicely and she’ll probably give you one.  She’s married to the incredible Michael Hanner and enjoys Survivor, wine, pizza, French, and cutting up little bits of paper with small scissors.

Anita Sullivan has been writing poetry and prose pretty much all her life, and in her own work, she is careful about the difference between them.  In December 2016, she published a chapbook of poetry with Eugene’s Uttered Chaos Press, called And If the Dead Do Dream.  A Portland poet recently called her a mystic, and she thinks that’s true, about her poetry at least.  She has published two essay collections, a novel, a full-length poetry book, and two poetry chapbooks.  Shanti Arts Press in Maine will publish what she calls a “chapbook of essays” sometime late next year.
