Awarded the Nadya Aisenberg Fellowship from the MacDowell Colony, where she was a fellow in 2012 and 2014, her work has been chosen for Harvard Review Online's Poetry Pick and has appeared in Gulf Coast, Kenyon Review Online, Massachusetts Review, and Prelude, among other journals.

Scarlett Sabet is a London based poet and performer. Her first collection "Rocking Underground" was launched with a reading at the Chelsea Arts Club in November 2014.

Chris Campanioni has worked as a journalist, model, and actor, and he teaches literature and creative writing at Baruch College and Pace University, and interdisciplinary studies at John Jay. His “Billboards” poem that responded to Latino stereotypes and mutable—and often muted—identity in the fashion world was awarded the 2013 Academy of American Poets Prize and his novel Going Down was selected as Best First Book at the 2014 International Latino Book Awards. His book Death of Art (C&R Press) is a cross-genre memoir. He edits PANK and lives in Brooklyn.
