Ivona Bozik

Ivona Bozik is a Slovenian that has lived in Paris, France for four years. She survives on meaningless jobs, nurturing herself with music and concerts, and reading in English as well as in French. "Even after trying myself in journalistic texts and running my own blog, it's prose and occasional poetry writing that stay the truest expression of my creativity and aliveness and of my attempt to defeat the absurdity of the world, as Phil Ochs would say, even though I can't expect to make it. My stories are concentrated on those fleeting moments of being that sometimes happen in our solitude, yet sometimes they offer us a door to another soul. My fiction is born out of those moments shared (or not) with another and of all the ambiguities that entails."

Jamie Sawczyszyn

Jamie has been writing all of her life, and went to school for 3 years to study professional writing. Though she just began submitting to publications more recently, she has hosted several slam poetry events for herself and other writers to perform their works of art. Writing is more of an artistic outlet for her, and mainly focuses on raw nonfiction prose and poetry. She is in the works of writing a nonfiction book, which will focus on the psychological impact that her childhood had on her as she grew into an adult, and overcoming her anxiety disorder. She hopes that her book, like most of her works of poetry, will help any of her readers who are struggling with mental illness or going through a rough time in thier lives.
