Kurt Wooden lives and writes in Berkeley, CA, and is currently earning a Master’s degree in creative writing at UC Davis.
Eric Sneathen was born and raised in San Diego, where he got up to nothing much. After graduating from UC Davis in 2008, well-equipped with a BA in English (and a minor in Art History!), he served with the United States Peace Corps in Outat El Haj, Morocco, as a Youth Development Volunteer. Between returning to UC Davis to pursue an M.A. in Creative Writing and completing his term of service, Eric worked as an orange and yellow smoothie maker in San Leandro and as an SAT tutor in Lafayette. He has yet to write a good poem about scooping sherbet.
JM Huscher is the product of a geographically dysfunctional childhood. A writer, editor, and sometimes-illustrator originally from small-town Nebraska, JM currently lives in Sacramento, California, where he is working to complete an MA in creative writing at the University of California - Davis. JM’s fiction generally considers transnational themes with a particular interest in Eastern Europe, but he also writes experimental fiction and illustrated stories.
JM has toured and performed extensively - to date, he has performed and presented workshops in 25 states, at seven National Poetry Slams, and in two federal prisons. In 2005, JM co-founded The Nebraska Writers Collective, a 501.c that works to promote and support creativity, literary awareness, poetry, and performance poetry in the midwest. JM’s work on an anthology of poetry won him the 2006 Nebraska Center for the Book award for Book of the Year.
In his free time, he rides and restores vintage Italian motorcycles. He also hates writing bios.
