Katharine Schulz

Katharine Schulz is indescribable: stunning, talented, breathtaking, exquisite, completely unique, and most of all modest. Katharine is a friend to all vermin, as she was one in a previous life. She’s deeply interesting and complex, however she’s handicapped by the fact that she cannot stop breaking the first rule of F**** C***. She would like to point fingers at her 2nd grade teacher for allowing her to write 50 poems in one day instead of doing school work, and thank Martin Scorsese for casting Harvey Keitel in Mean Streets.

Gabriel Sebastian, Futurist

Capricious vagabond, time-displaced Viking. Gabriel Sebastian has been pretending to write verse and doggerel since Nixon met Mao. Dubious credentials will not be bill-boarded here. Chronic sufferer of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) – political and cultural variant. Suffice it to say, Sebastian’s endeavors include surrealist poetry and contemporary fictions.

Picture of Dana Trick

Dana Trick

Born a first-generation Mexican-Canadian-American autistic demisexual with ADHD, Dana Trick lives in Southern California where it is clearly foolish to wear black any day, but she does it anyway. Besides writing, she spends/wastes her day by either reading weird books and comics; researching history because she is an historian with a degree to prove it; drawing crappy art and comics which she posts on deviantART under Silencedbook9; and/or watching an unhealthy amount of cartoons, anime, and YouTube videos. She wishes the reader a nice day.
