Entry is FREE and open to all ages!

Sasha LaPointe lives in Seattle Washington and is currently pursuing her MFA in creative writing at the Institute of American Indian Arts. She is a recipient of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s 2014 Graduate of The Arts Award. Her poems have been published in The Magazine, As Us, and Aborted Society‘s online journal. She is working on a book of poetry as well as a memoir focused on her experiences growing up on the Swinomish reservation in northwest Washington.

Kelsey Camacho was born and raised in North Carolina, where she experienced levels of wanderlust that made her set out on strange, impulsive adventures. She has always been fascinated with places and the ways they sink into a person’s bones. She is eternally homesick for everywhere she has been. After she finally visits every place in the world, her next destination will be the moon. For now, she lives in Portland.

Edie Rylander’s work has appeared or is forthcoming in Thick Jam, Crack the Spine Literary Magazine, Black Heart Magazine, Nailed Magazine, and Gobshite Quarterly. She studies word crafting at Portland State University, and is a co-editor for the online literary press, The Gravity of the Thing.
