A recent San Francisco transplant, KAT CASE is NYC Teaching Fellow at a public high school in East New York, where she teaches English and lets her students use the words "wylin" and "bitchass” in their short stories. She has written and carefully duct-taped several issues of the zine Snapshots; the most recent issue was The Bro-Job Chronicles, where it doesn’t matter as long as there’s a warm mouth. As a tutu-wearing, bourbon-spilling columnist for Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll for five years, she covered queer punks, sexual politics, and even the occasional brilliant show. Right now, she’s trying to find time in-between lesson planning to finish writing a novel about a beat-era woman artist which explores the meaning of success in a world where neither the lives of harlots nor the creation of useless objects are valued.
JULY COLE is a displaced Appalachian transsexual now studying poetry and environmental science at the University of Montana. He swam the Bitterroot River and the North Fork of the Flathead this year in mid-May, his earliest start yet.
MISTY HARPER studied poetry at Indiana University and Georgia Tech. She lives in Atlanta. In 2005, her chapbook Guarding the Violins was chosen for the PSA chapbook series.
DANIEL LIN has a chapbook, TINDER, from Nightboat Books, and has recently published poems in Unsplendid, Notre Dame Review and The Jewish Quarterly. He was a N.Y. Times Fellow at NYU and a Tennessee Williams Scholar at Sewanee Writers’ Conference. He co-edits Love among the Ruins, which will publish limited-edition chapbooks and an online journal.
