Matthew James Palozzi is an exemplary depiction of the post-modern man: butcher by day, poet by night. His mustachioed form is a blank canvas for lyrical tattoos inspired by his favorite authors and film makers, including Kurt Vonnegut and Wes Anderson, respectively. He feigns to strive to publish his burgeoning novel soon, a crime story depicting a hard-boiled private eye named Lou “Judgy” Mandible. Visit him on Tumblr.
Roger H. Brightley is a restless soul, whose sensitive fire is assuaged only in the cascading waves of hope and acceptance. In a more materialistic and physical sense, he resides in the beautiful climate-controlled region of East Africa – precisely, Nairobi. His hobbies include whistling whilst working, bleughing at those partaking coffee and travelling whenever the winds lift his sails. He holds a managerial white-collar position in Marketing, but he loves nothing more than carving a slice out of his day to kick back and write, sending his thoughts off to his Tumblr blog on the swift wings of technological convenience. His co-written collection of love poems, Unsung Ballads of Buttered Toast and Jam, is available from Amazon, Book Depository, Barnes & Noble etc in print and as an ebook from Kindle.
Molly Grace Gaertner is a 16 year old writer from Minnesota. This is her first time being published and she hopes to do a lot more in the near future. She jumps at any chance to write, and hopes it will be something she will continue to do for the rest of her life. While at 16 the most consistent things in her life are school and her tumblr account, she is planning on moving to the New York/New Jersey area soon to study Psychology and hopefully publish many more works. If you wish to contact her or find out more feel free to check out hertumblr, her instagram, or send her an email.
