About the readers/performers:

Sarah Jeong is a journalist who was trained as a lawyer. She is a contributing editor at Vice Motherboard who writes about technology, policy, and law. She is the author of The Internet of Garbage, and has bylines at The Verge, Forbes, The Guardian, Slate, and WIRED. She graduated from Harvard Law School in 2014. As a law student, she edited the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender, and worked at the Electronic Frontier Foundation and at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. She is currently a fellow at the Internet Law & Policy Foundry.

Carrie Patel is the author of two science fantasy novels, The Buried Life and Cities and Thrones. She works as a narrative designer at Obsidian Entertainment in Irvine, California.

K. Tempest Bradford is a speculative fiction writer by night, a media critic and culture columnist by day, and an activist blogger in the interstices. Her fiction has appeared in Strange Horizons, Electric Velocipede, and illustrious anthologies such as Diverse Energies. She’s also a regular contributor to NPR, io9, and books about Time Lords. Visit her blog: KTempestBradford.com

Jessica Erica Hahn is finishing a book about her parents, a hippie ship captain and a civil rights activist, who lived on the sea in renovated World War Two era ships. About a dozen of her stories and essays appear in literary journals, links to which can be found here. Other writing projects include Hill Babies, a blog about kid-friendly hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area, and editing Passing Through, a literary journal that collaborates creative writing and images about the road less traveled. In the 1990s, Jessica spent a couple years traveling thousands of miles by freight train, Greyhound, car, thumb, and foot, making money here and there around the USA. Around this time she wrote the books Transient Ways, Elysian Fields: A Fucked Up Love Story, and Elemental.

S. Kay zaps tweet-sized stories to analyze future and fact. She lives in Vancouver, Canada and online. She's a queer, neurodiverse author collecting many air miles, married to a San Francisco scientist. A consummate Twitter fiction writer, she's been featured in two anthologies: ON A NARROW WINDOWSILL, and 140 AND COUNTING, and won prizes in the 2014 #TwitterFiction Festival, Confettifall’s Audience Choice Award, and Cuento Magazine’s 4th of July Contest. SPAMBOT PSYCHOSIS, an origami text cube avant object, is available from zimZalla. RELIANT, an apocalypse in tweets, is out October 2015 from tNY.Press, and and her novella JOY will be out January 2016 from Maudlin House.

Michael Collins’ poems have appeared in more than 50 journals and magazines, including Grist, Kenning Journal, Pank, and Smartish Pace. His first chapbook, How to Sing when People Cut off your Head and Leave it Floating in the Water, won the Exact Change Press Chapbook Contest in 2014. A full-length collection, Psalmandala, was published later that year, and a second chapbook, Harbor Mandala, appeared in 2015.
