1. Angela King has always loved writing. She’s been writing on and off for years (more off until recently) and was once upon a time, a runner up in a short story competition. She can’t find that piece of paper at the moment. She is now obsessed with the writing bug to the exclusion of normal life.

  2. My life as a writer began when my husband and I decided to spend a year in Italy. I kept a journal which was later published as Ciao, Napoli. A Scrapbook of Wandering in Naples. I have compiled a book of short stories, titled Siren Shore inspired by our experiences in Italy. My work has appeared on Ovunque Siamo and Foxglove Journal. I am an active member of the New York Writers’ Coalition and of the Italian American Writers’ Association. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Romance Languages and have also been involved in community theater.

  3. Writer of stories with an archaic nature and obscure structuring. Often primarily thematic instead of character/plot driven, and other times more simplistic and enjoyable. Albanian from Kosovo, a lover of old myths and legends, and an explorer of relations between differing deities.

  4. An engineering student by day and writer by night, Ash enjoys travelling and learning about the history of places. Sometimes they discover new things along the way, usually when they least expect it.

  5. Ayesha writes reviews, short stories, plays, poetry, and essays. Her work has been staged and published widely. She’s from Karachi and lives in London.

  6. Ayuna Imura is a German-based queer Japanese-Italian writer. Growing up between natal Frankfurt and London and back again, she has cultivated a considerable knack for languages while also treasuring the unique blend of East and West in her heritage. When she's not chasing obscure story kernels down the rabbit hole of Japanese history or decoding the secrets of Chinese ideograms, she can be found on her balcony with ryokucha and red bean cakes as she works on her next story.
