BUCKY REA is founder at Invisible Lines, a troupe of poets who put other people's poetry on stage. Shows to date have featured the works of Debra Mathes, Salvador Macias, Samira Noorali, Alice Alsup, and Edgar Allan Poe. He graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 1989 and embarked on a series of meaningless jobs. He won't talk about that; only the poetry matters. Well, poetry and art. And love. And puppies. In the 1990s he published a few chap books for Houston performing poets to highlight the written and visual wordcraft of writers who prefer to reach their audiences through the ear. He has served as Events Coordinator for the Houston Poetry Fest since 2012. In 2015 he was selected to serve on Frenetic Theater's year-long Artist Board program.
