Pamela Brenman is a native New Yorker who came to San Francisco State University to study writing with Frances Mayes and Stan Rice. She earned an MFA and now teaches in Berkeley. Her passion is writing historically imagined fiction and poetry that draws upon the voices of a menagerie of characters inspired by history, myth, and fairytales.  Her poetry and fiction are published in Milvia Street art and literary journal.


A native of Valdosta, Georgia, Shanna Hullaby was attracted to the bright lights and cheaper-than-Frisco rents of the East Bay. She hopes to be a playwright the likes of Lorraine Hansberry. She is attending Mills College this fall and majoring in creative writing.


Michael Mohr is a twenty-nine-year-old writer living in Oakland. He is majoring in creative writing with a focus in short fiction and novels, but poetry has always sparked a fire for him. Putting pen to paper and finding his voice as an author are his two passions.



Christopher Portka is a student. He has a job. He still has hopes. He doesn’t go into fits of depression. He stares at screens all day every day. His screens create a sense of infinite possibility wherein he feels cheated and wants revenge. His mind dreams, and he reminds himself to breathe.
