Jesse Miksic

Jesse Miksic is a poet, artist, and graphic designer currently residing in the greater Philadelphia area. Between adventures with his lovable and chaotic family, he writes poems about pop culture, imaginary landscapes, and personal history in a mythic register. He also has a sketchbook where he experiments with surrealistic and symbolic imagery in pen and ink and watercolor. Jesse’s most recent placements include Green Ink Poetry, Punk Noir, Drunk Monkeys, and Cape Magazine, and he was Pink Plastic House’s poet of the week in early January 2022. He is working on his first chap-book, entitled Playing for Keeps, Praying for Sleeps.

Elisabeth Horan

Elisabeth Horan is an imperfect creature from Vermont – advocating for those suffering alone and in pain – especially those ostracized by disability and mental illness. She likes goodness in people. She has two sons. They are her life. She is fighting and healing. She speaks with animals. She has books at Fly on the Wall, Twist in Time, Moonchild Mag, Cephalo Press, Femme Salve, and Broken Spine Arts. 

She is the Editor in Chief at Animal Heart Press.

Lynne Jensen Lampe

Lynne Jensen Lampe was born in Newfoundland, grew up in the American South, spent a decade in Seattle, and settled in the midwestern city where she met her musician husband and her other favorite person, his daughter. Lynne’s chapbook Talk Smack to a Hurricane will be published in 2022 by Ice Floe Press. Recent poems appear in Yemassee, Hyades, Anti-Heroin Chic, The American Journal of Poetry, LIT Magazine, One, and an anthology from UK publisher Black Sunflowers Poetry Press. Many of her poems explore sanity, conformity, and family. Lynne also edits books and journal articles. She’s glad to be writing after years away while working various jobs (teacher, activist, receptionist, newsroom graphic designer), navigating marriage and motherhood, and just being scared of what might come out on the page.
