Featured readings include:
Amanda Doster -- Permission to Go Home
Amanda is a full-blooded Southerner who has never actually lived in the South. Instead, she has spent her life in New Jersey suburbs, East German villages, and rural New England. Her poetry is therefore geographically confused. She has a BA in English from Brown University, has had poems published in Sketchbook and 154, and won the 2010 Poet's Seat poetry contest.
Rosie Forrest -- Hush, Hush, Old Girl (short story collection)
Rosie Forrest is a third year fiction student and teaching assistant at the University of New Hampshire, where she's received both the Dick Shea and Thomas Williams Memorial Awards for fiction writing, as well as an English Department excellence in teaching award. Prior to New Hampshire, Rosie lived in Chicago for eight years working as a literary manager and dramaturg with various Chicago theater companies. Also in Chicago, she wrote and performed personal narratives with 2nd Story, a collective that specialized in collaborations between writers, performers, and musicians.
Nathan Fink -- Help Is on the Way (short story collection)
Nathan J. Fink's work has appeared in Wisconsin Review, UNH Magazine, and Eklectica. Currently, he resides in Rye, New Hampshire, where he is attempting to write one good story.
