Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared or are forthcoming in Black Warrior Review, Cream City Review, Hobart, The Margins, and elsewhere.
JL KATO is a former newspaper copy editor whose poems have appeared in various publications. His book, Shadows Set in Concrete, was selected best volume of poetry in 2010 by the Indiana Center for the Book. He lives in Beech Grove, Indiana.
NANCY CHEN LONG is the author of Wider than the Sky (Diode Editions, 2020), which was selected for the Diode Editions Book Award, and Light into Bodies (University of Tampa Press, 2017), which won the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry.
