Victoria Ann MEYERS is interested in relativity and all things relative, relatively speaking. She was born in the wealthy white suburbs, raised amongst trailer trash, and presently thrives amongst millennial hipsters. She is a woman, feminist, photographer, poet, hedonist, brat, cynic, and often times far too facetious. She enjoys grit, grunge, lyric, smokes Virginia Slims, and occasionally snorts when she laughs. Like Sartre, she exists. And she finds it nauseating.

 Roger REEVES's poems have appeared in journals such as Poetry, Ploughshares, American Poetry Review, Boston Review, and Tin House, among others. Kim Addonizio selected “Kletic of Walt Whitman” for the Best New Poets 2009 anthology. He was awarded a 2013 NEA Fellowship, Ruth Lilly Fellowship by the Poetry Foundation in 2008, two Bread Loaf Scholarships, an Alberta H. Walker Scholarship from the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, and two Cave Canem Fellowships. He earned his PhD the University of Texas-Austin and is currently an assistant professor of poetry at the University of Illinois, Chicago. His first book is King Me (Copper Canyon Press, 2013).
