Enamored from a young age by spaceships and quasars, but cursed with bookish inclinations and weak pectorals, Natty Bokenkamp was left to choose between careers in astrophysics and fiction writing. He attempted both, but ultimately found χ2's and Δv's unsatisfying, dooming him (in the good ol' mythological sense) to the path of the MFA. His work has appeared in the journal ZYZZYVA, and he was awarded the 2007 Asimov's Magazine prize for Undergraduate Fiction. He is currently in his first year at UMass Boston
Nicholas Leonard is a poet and visual artist currently living and working in Cambridge, MA. He received his BFA in the Studio for Interrelated Media at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and is currently working towards his MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) at Boston University. He has shown his visual artwork in galleries and festivals throughout the Northeast, and has work forthcoming in Stand magazine.
Laura Campagna was born and raised in Brookline, MA and spent many Friday nights as a nerdy teen haunting the halls of the Booksmith. She left for a long time and lived in Ohio, New York, Portland, OR, and San Francisco. She is happy to be back home, getting her MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson, and living in a cozy cottage in Jamaica Plain with her wonderful partner and two hellion ginger cats.
Emily Thomas is currently working on her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at Emerson College, where she also teaches classes in the first-year writing program and serves as the poetry editor for Redivider, a journal of new literature and art. When she is not teaching, tutoring, or editing, she is most likely reading or writing poems.
