Kim Vodicka is the spokesbitch of a degeneration and heart-reactionary at the rearguard of the rose arts. She is the author of three full-length poetry collections: Aesthesia Balderdash (Trembling Pillow Press, 2012), Psychic Privates (White Stag Publishing, 2018), and The Elvis Machine (CLASH Books, 2020 [forthcoming]). She is also the creator of several multimedia works—a poetic comic book series, a chapbook of sound poems on vinyl, and an illustrated book of poetry. She is a two-time finalist for the Tarpaulin Sky Book Prize and recent winner of Really Serious Literature’s Cravan & Bronson Dilemma Contest, for which her submitted poem will become a permanent tattoo. Her poems, art, and essays have been featured in Tenderloin, Spork, Queen Mob’s Teahouse, Makeout Creek, Luna Luna Magazine, Paper Darts, Best American Experimental Writing, Nasty! and many others. For the past decade, she has toured the country performing spoken word with musical accompaniment in bookstores, dive bars, art galleries, cafes, diners, festivals, pinup clubs, vintage clothing shops, rooftops, backyards, and places of worship. Originally from south Louisiana, she currently lives in Memphis, Tennessee with her beloved cat, Lula. Cruise her at kimvodicka.com.

Hannah (Beaux) Neal is a poet and musician hailing from Atlanta, GA, the land of decent dive bar wings and selling out for clout. Her musical projects include doom country outfit “Lowtown” and guitar stylings for Kim Vodicka. She sees her role as one of translation rather than self-congratulatory shredding—making sense of an otherwise insensitive world, as well as the cruel intentions and intonations of love. Self-published chapbooks include The Art of Traveling Light (2016), Millennial Garbage (2016) and Two Faces of the Moon (2017). Other poems have appeared in Wussy Mag, Floromancy, Snakeskin, and Snapdragon. Beaux’s website is under deconstruction, but you can find her @hannahbolecter on Instagram, where the influencers do business and the artists advertise.

Shawn Pavey has a bio forthcoming!
