An excerpt of my novel has been published in Coloring Book: An Eclectic Anthology of Fiction & Poetry by Multicultural Writers (Rattlecat Press).

SAVIO PHAM

My life, in essence, can be found in the story:  the family in the story is essentially mine; for a time, those family dinners were the kind I was present at regularly, those people were the ones who helped raise me.

HANNAH LUSH

I am a nineteen-year-old college student at Vanguard University of Southern California, where I am furthering my passion to be a working writer, studying English with a Creative Writing emphasis before hopefully going on to grad school. hannahlush.blogspot.com; hannah.lush@vanguard.edu

DIANNA BRACKNEY

I got into writing poetry when I was eight years old. I wrote my first poem after watching the She was Gone episode of As Told by Ginger. The poem in it was just so beautiful that it inspired my first poem, To Be Seen.

EDIE EVERETTE

I have always seen the world in single-panel cartoons.  Within the past year I have gotten two regular cartoon gigs, a dream come true. One is a weekly spot in Seven Days, Vermont’s Independent Newspaper, and the other is a bi-monthly series entitled I Am an Artist in Pyragraph—a career, culture, and how-to online zine for artists of all stripes. everettecartoons.com

ANDY FREW

I am a retired teacher living in Rhode Island. Since my retirement I have been working with The Rhode Island Paranormal Research Group. My experience with them has taught me that most ghosts are simply people who have passed over to the other side. They are waiting for help, acknowledgement, or communication, and are not intent on scaring or threatening people.

KATIE O’NEILL

I’m obsessed with workout videos. I love reading screenplays. I think the Volvo S40 is the greatest car ever created. And I’m working on an MFA in Creative Writing at Butler University in Indianapolis. Katieoneill2011@gmail.com

 

SHARYN STONE

Theatre has always been my first love, and all my pieces are written to be performed—starting with my one-woman show, Milk Street, at the Maui Fringe Festival in 2011 where I won both the Koa and Hoku awards (best play, best actress).

STEFANIE PICKETT-BUCKNER

My poems are published in Byline Magazine, Time of Singing, Sacred Journey, The Penwood Review, The Poet’s Art, Love’s Chance Magazine, SP Quill Quarterly, Pulsar Poetry Magazine, New Verse News, Ruah, The New Renaissance, Wild Violet, The Shepherd.

ANITA N VOELKER

I am an associate professor at Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, where I teach Children’s Literature. I teach tomorrow’s teachers about literacy, but primarily, I want them to fall in love with reading and become pathological about writing in their daybooks/journals. avoelker@messiah.edu

It is not only form or style that makes me write, but the discovery process of the inner self.
