Olivia Raco is a Montreal writer studying English and Creative Writing at Concordia University. She focuses primarily on poetry, and likes to explore different narratives in her work. When she isn’t busy running late and losing things, you can find her eating cheesecake or silently crying about all the homework she isn’t doing.

Graeme Shorten Adams fears time. He will be graduating from Concordia's Studio Arts program pretty soon and is largely unhappy about it. He saw the leg of some kind of bird on the road the other day, only the leg. He tries to draw and read as much as possible.

Lucia Pasquale writes poems and resides in that golden state, California. Her work has been published in issue sixteen of Literary Orphans as well as the inaugural issue of the Alcala Review at the University of San Diego. She is currently Art Editor for Vagabond City Literary Journal. When she’s not writing poetry she is most likely knitting a pair of socks. 

Kara Bowers is in her third year of Creative Writing and first year of Studio Art at Concordia University in Montreal. She is from Toronto and she has an outie bellybutton. She enjoys astrology, babysitting, shopping at secondhand stores, salt lamps, swimming, and telling her secrets to others.

Michael Juretic’s fiction and poetry have appeared in Headlight Anthology, The Nashwaak Review, Lantern Magazine, The Anthology of Montreal Writers, vol. 6, CV2, and Arc Poetry Online. He lives in Montreal with his family and is currently working on a novel about a boy, his mother, a cult, and a retired stage magician, set during the slow death of the Age of Aquarius. 

Mia Poirier is a student at Concordia University, Majoring in Creative Writing. Their work has previously been published in The Void, The F Word, and as a poetry collection. Mia resides in NDG. When they aren’t writing poems, Mia can be found eating bread in their apartment, or napping in Concordia’s English Department. 

Melanie Power made the move from her seaside home in Newfoundland to the big city to pursue undergraduate studies in English Literature at Concordia. She had romantic notions of mastering French and finding true love, but has settled for poor translations of Verlaine and the security of a pest-free apartment. Her dream job is a love letter ghostwriter. Her probable fate is bankruptcy. 

Barbara D. Janusz is a graduate of the University of Alberta with degrees in Arts and Law. She is the author of the novel Mirrored in the Caves and has published poetry, short stories, essays, book reviews, and editorials in literary journals, magazines, newspapers, and anthologies across Canada. A contributing writer for Alternatives Journal, Canada’s Environmental Voice, Barbara resides in Crowsnest Pass, Alberta.

Her work has appeared in The New Quarterly, Headlight Anthology, What If? Magazine, and Live Lines. Jenny hopes to be a plant when she grows up and would like to be your imaginary friend.
