Poet, playwright and director
Kat Georges wrote and directed 15 plays 
during her 10-year tenure as artistic director of San Francisco’s 
Marilyn Monroe Memorial Theater, including SCUM: The Valerie Solanas 
Story, Paglia in Persona (a deconstruction of Camille Paglia), and Art 
was Here (inspired by Dada founder Arthur Cravan). Her poetry appears 
in The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry (Thunder’s Mouth Press) and The 
Verdict is In (Manic D Press, also editor).

Kat has three collections of her poetry, Punk Rock Journal, Maiden Claiming and Slow Dance at 
120 Beats a Minute (all Three Rooms Press). In New York since 2003, 
she has directed numerous Off-Broadway plays, including most recently 
Jack Kerouac: Catholic and Twitter Theater, both written by award- 
winning playwright Larry Myers, and Sarah's Choice, by Peter Carlaftes. For more information, visit http://threeroomspress.blogspot.com/

Peter Carlaftes work has been described as "a beautiful poetic voice, filled with drop-dead humor, searing insight and reselient originality, even while resonating with overtones of Bukowski, Baudelarie and Bogart." He discovered his poetic voice on the playgrounds of the Bronx, and, after seeing the world, branched out to the bars of Manhattan. According to Carlaftes, DrunkYard Dog offers poems from "both sides of the bar," and marks his third Three Rooms Press release in 2010, following A Year on Facebook (humor) and Triumph for Rent (three plays).
