She's had poems in 4 Poets, Hobart, Witchcraft and Metatron where she is the New York coordinator, and essays in Hazlitt, Real Life, The New Inquiry and Mask Magazine where she is a contributing editor. She spends a lot of time thinking about intimacy, resistance, how to create community and education alternatives. Find her on twitter & tumblr @rubybrunton

    Clio Chang is a staff writer at the New Republic who covers politics, policy, and sometimes a little culture. It is very fun to work with her and everyone should do so at some point in their lives. 

    Yessenia Funes is the climate justice reporter for Colorlines. She writes about race, climate change and environmental policy. In her free time, Yessenia hoards print magazines and rides her bike.

    Kay Gabriel is aufgehoben or bust, baby. Her chapbook Elegy Department Spring (BOAAT Press, 2017) was the finalist for the 2016 BOAAT chapbook prize judged by Richard Siken. With David W. Pritchard, she's also the author of Impropria Persona (Damask Press, 2017). Catch her being chaste and unopinionated, @unit01barbie on Twitter dot com.

    Connie Wang is the Senior Features Writer at Refinery29. Her investigative features, interviews, and video series help women feel empowered by, enlightened about, and engaged with the clothing they wear. She's been featured as a fashion and style expert in The New York Times, AdAge, Bloomberg, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal, and has appeared on Extra!, Good Morning America, and WPIX Morning News. Connie is a graduate of UC Berkeley in Political Science and Media Studies. She was previously the editor at Chictopia, a fashion blogging platform based in San Francisco. 

    Charlotte Shane is an essayist, author, and co-founder of TigerBee Press. The Guardian likened her written work to Charles Dickens, and Vice called her book Prostitute Laundry "addictive [and] intimate." Just like an opium den.
