'''Iris Berry''' is a musician, writer, poet, Los Angeles pop culture historian and actress. One of the true and original progenitors of the L.A. punk scene. A native Angelino, her lifetime spent in the City of Angels has resulted in over two decades worth of astonishing literary contributions. Berry’s writing has been widely anthologized. In ''The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry'' she appears along side the likes of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs. Internationally known, her wit and often dark, factual accuracy and empathy for her subjects has brought critical acclaim as well as a huge fan base. Berry is the Author of several books including “Two Blocks East Of Vine,” and “The Underground Guide To Los Angeles,” co-authored with writing partner Pleasant Gehman.

'''John Dorsey''' (b. 27 November 1976) is an American poet, playwright, newspaper journalist, and screenwriter. Since 2005, he has been a journalist for the ''Toledo Free Press'' interviewing celebrities such as Ted Nugent and Rikki Lake. He has written the regular poetry column ''GLASS CITY MUSE'' since October 2010 and currently serves as editor of their ''Star Poetry page''.

Berry writes her experiences with wit, grace and deadly precision. Her lullaby-and-bedtime-story voice is like a haunting tour of Los Angeles that lingers like one of the city’s famous unsolved murders. Her writing is gritty and scarred, but loaded with details, and an ironic, wry sense of humor. Whether she is paying tribute to a deceased cat, describing the suicidal tendencies of a gangster ex-boyfriend, or matter-of-factly chronicling a string of heroine overdoses, there is always a connecting thread – survivors wisdom and a sense of universal hope. Telling stories of Hollywood as it is and was, with a nonchalance that’s fragile, intelligent and tough all at once. And she doesn’t hide the sometimes unpleasant scenarios beneath flowery language.
+
Dorsey was born in a military hospital in Hawaii on November 27, 1976.
 +
The eldest son of John V. Dorsey Jr. and Donna Dorsey, he was raised in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh, and graduated from Hempfield Area Senior High School in 1995. He also graduated from the University of the Arts in 2002, with a B.F.A. in Writing for Film and Television. Born with cerebral palsy, John has actively spoken to help raise awareness for those with disabilities. He has a younger brother named Jason.
