In this audio archive, poets Jonathan Wells and Spencer Short read from their work. Jonathan Wells was the director of Rolling Stone Press, the book publishing division of Rolling Stone magazine. He is a widely published poet and the author of Train Dance, his first full-length collection of poetry. He is also the editor of Third Rail: The Poetry of Rock and Roll. Train Dance adopts the rhythm and return of the commute through the Hudson Valley into Manhattan as a motif for the echoes of memory and event that contour a life.

Spencer Short is a graduate of The Iowa Writers' Workshop and The University of Chicago Law School. His first collection of poems, Tremolo, was a National Poetry Series winner, selected by Billy Collins.
