Marion Bell
Brandon Holmquest
Carlos Soto-Roman



Carlos Soto-Román was born in Valparaíso, Chile. He is the author of Philadelphia's Notebooks (Otoliths, 2011). He curates the cooperative anthology of contemporary u.s. poetry Elective Affinities. He lives in Philadelphia, PA.  




Brandon Holmquest will just show up unannounced in your town like it's no big deal and leave just as nonchalantly. When not living out his childhood dream of being a suspicious drifter, he writes and translates poems, rolls cigarettes and wonders what his problem is, exactly 







Marion Bell is a poet who lives in Philadelphia. She has a chapbook called The Abjector from con/crescent press. Recent interests include Marxist and trans feminisms, prison abolition movements, and the uses of anger. She also likes folk songs, cats and coffee. She’s working on a manuscript tentatively titled Hey High Lonesome or Queer Theory for Losers or You People. She was selected for a 2012 grant from the Barbara Deming Memorial Foundation.
