JANICE LEE currently lives in Los Angeles where she is editor of the #RECURRENT Novel Series, Assistant Editor at Fanzine, Executive Editor at Entropy, and Founder/ CEO of POTG Design. She is the author of KEROTAKIS (Dog Horn Press, 2010), Daughter (Jaded Ibis, 2011), Damnation (Penny­-Ante Editions, 2013), Reconsolidation (Penny­-Ante Editions, 2015), and The Sky Isn’t Blue (Civil Coping Mechanisms, 2016).

ABRAHAM SMITH is from Ladysmith, Wisconsin. He farms in the summer–teaches at the University of Alabama during the school year. His fourth poetry collection, Ashagalomancy, is new from Action Books.

LIZA DAY is a singer/song­writer and Wisconsin native who, along with her 5­piece band from Chicago, is rooted in the alternative­ country tradition. Liza is a graduate and former artist in residence of The Contemporary Music Center in Martha’s Vineyard. She leads the band with an unforgettably warm and pure voice skillfully combined with performances as vulnerable and sincere as the songs she’s written. Musically the band’s style can be described as classic country layered with a raw, untidy, rockabilly vibe. Their 6 song EP titled, One For Courage was released in October of 2012.
