Richard Hell is the author of several books of fiction, poetry, essays, notebooks, autobiography, and collaborations including What Just Happened (with images by Christopher Wool), The Voidoid, Go Now, Godlike, Across the Years, Artifact, Hot and Cold, I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp, Massive Pissed Love, Wanna Go Out? by Theresa Stern (with Tom Verlaine) and Psychopts (with Christopher Wool). He lives in New York.

Garth Graeper‘s first book of poetry, The Sky Broke More (Winter Editions), blends ecopoetics, ghost story, and sci-fi thriller to imagine survival in a world where nature, time, and identity are unstable and predatory. Graeper is the author of two chapbooks, By Deer Light (Greying Ghost), and Into the Forest Engine (Projective Industries), as well as the site-specific Park Book series of handmade booklets based on and distributed in places like New York’s Central Park and Battery Park.

Emily Simon is a writer and teacher living in New York City. Her first book, In Many Ways (Winter Editions), is a lyrical and timely experiment in prose fragments, a log of pandemic life, and a meditation on selfhood, memory, and language. A graduate of the Columbia University Writing Program in poetry, she has published the poetry chapbook Reign is Over (Choo Choo Press), and her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in The Florida Review, Salt Hill, and Some Kind of Opening.

Marina Tëmkina is a poet-artist whose interdisciplinary practice embodies her multi-national immigrant experiences. Her books include the poetry collection What Do You Want? (UDP), three artist books, two books with artist Michel Gérard, and five books of poetry in Russian. Boys Fight, a special edition chapbook collaboration with Michel Gérard, was published by Winter Editions and Alder & Frankia in 2023.
