Portland poet Maryrose Larkin's books of poetry include Identification of Ghosts (Chax, 2013) and The Name of This Intersection is Frost (Shearsman Books, 2010). Larkin is a founding member of Spare Room, a Portland-based writing collective which has presented more than 150 writing events over a ten year period. She is also co-editor, with Sarah Mangold, of FLASH+CARD, a chapbook and ephemera poetry press. Larkin has worked collaboratively with a variety of visual and musical artists, including the bands Kaya Onieda and Activity Universal Associations. She is currently working on "speaking buildings," a part of which is a collaboration with visual artist Anna Daedalus that was selected as part of the Art in Rural Storefronts project of Art Center of Corvallis.

Portland poet Standard Schaefer's books of poetry include The Notebook of False Purgatories (2011) and Water & Power (Agincourt, 2005). His first book of poetry, Nova, was selected for the 1999 National Poetry Series and published by Sun & Moon Press. Schaefer's poetry has been translated into Italian and anthologized internationally. He has co-edited several literary and arts journals including Ribot, New Review of Literature, Rhizome, and Or and has taught writing and literature at Otis College of Art in Los Angeles and California College of the Arts in San Francisco.

Circuit Rider Walking is a collaborative window installation that collages poetry and photographic images by Anna Daedalus and Maryrose Larkin. This project combines Daedalus’ painterly images of Oregon landscape with the poem Circuit Rider Walking written by Larkin about the town and people of Brownsville, its history and the history of 333 North Main St. It is also a continuation of Larkin’s Speaking Buildings - a literary installation project which creates site-specific poems for buildings based on the intersection of the building’s windows, history and language. For Daedalus, the project is part of the ongoing series, Night Tree.
