Caylee Gardner (she/they) is a queer writer in Salt Lake City, Utah. She received her BA in English and Gender Studies from the University of Utah. When she’s not writing, she assumes the identity of a mountain goat and enjoys listening to Taylor Swift or audiobooks on a nearby trail, or baking something for her friends in the kitchen.

Nain Christopherson (she/her) lives, writes poems, and teaches high school English and creative writing in Salt Lake City. She holds an HBA in English Teaching from the University of Utah and is currently completing an M.Ed. in Literacy Education, also at the U. In her few extracurricular hours, Nain can often be found walking to or from the closest movie theater or lingering over a book at Coffee Noir for an inappropriate amount of time.

Cole Barkey  (he/him) is a part-time poet, full-time nerd from Salt Lake City Utah. He graduated from the University of Utah with a BS in Cognitive Neuropsychology and an Associates in Human Development, and has worked for several years as a Neurofeedback therapist. When he isn’t writing anti-capitalist poetry, he spends his time hyper-fixating on any and every medium of fictional media and being a mediocre fly-fisherman.
