  5. 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.

A graduate of the Shaindy Rudoff Graduate Program in Creative Writing at Bar Ilan University, her work has been published in Poet Lore, Poetry International, Ilanot Review, Fragmented Voices, and New Flash Fiction Review . She is the recipient of the Andrea Moria Prize for Poetry, and was shortlisted for the Bridport Prize for Flash Fiction.

  8. Amateur writer from London. Likes birds, cricket, and Twitter.


  9. Bill Cox was born and bred in ‘the Granite City’ of Aberdeen, Scotland and he currently lives there with his partner Hilary and their grown-up baby daughter Catherine. Bill enjoyed creative writing when at school, but as the cliché goes, life got in the way and it was only in his forties, after taking an online course, that he returned to his teenage passion. He now writes for the sheer enjoyment of it, which is just as well as no-one seems willing to pay him to do it. He dabbles mainly in poetry and short fiction as he hasn’t built up the stamina yet to write anything longer. One day, though, he plans to gather his strength and write a book that will set the publishing world alight. In the meantime, he satisfies himself with composing bawdy limericks in his head.


  10. Brendon grew up in Detroit, lives in Chicago, and graduated from the University of Chicago. When not writing about speculative worlds, he teaches and translates classical and medieval literature.
