Marsha de la O was born and raised in Southern California. Both sides of her family arrived in the Los Angeles area before William Mulholland built the aqueduct that brought in water from the eastern Sierras. De la O worked as a bilingual teacher in Los Angeles and the rural community of Santa Paula for more than twenty-five years. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Vermont College. Her first book, Black Hope, was awarded the New Issues Press Poetry Prize. Her new book, Antidote for Night, received the 2015 Isabella Gardner Award and was published by BOA Editions. She lives in Ventura, California, with her husband, poet and editor Phil Taggart. Together, they produce poetry readings and events in Ventura County and are also the editors and publishers of the literary journal Askew.

Phil Taggart has published three collections of poetry. His most recent is Rick Sings, which deals with his brother’s struggle with schizophrenia. His other two books are Opium Wars and Cowboy Collages, an art book collaboration with Texas artist Ann Harithas. Taggart is a poet of social engagement, who uses a lean essential line to craft poems that look hard at the world around him. Phil Taggart enjoys a long history as a supporter of the arts in Ventura County. He has hosted readings at various locales since the early nineties, and currently runs Thursday Night Poetry, a weekly open mic and featured reading at the E.P. Foster Library in Ventura.
