Her poems have appeared in Poetry, Ploughshares, and The Southern Review. She teaches at Southeastern Louisiana University.

Jonathan Penton founded www.UnlikelyStories.org in 1998, and has run it, and its print subsidiary Unlikely Books, since. He has lent editorial and management assistance to a number of literary and artistic ventures, such as MadHat, Inc. and Big Bridge. He has organized literary performances, and performed himself, in places like Arkansas, California, Chihuahua, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, and Washington, state and DC. His poetry books areStandards of Sadiddy (Lit Fest Press, August 2016), Prosthetic Gods (New Sins Press/Winged City Chapbooks, 2008), Blood and Salsa and Painting Rust (Unlikely Books, 2006), and Last Chap (Vergin’ Press, 2004).

Elizabeth Garcia is apparently known as one of ‘dem people’ by the Citizenry. She conducts preventive maintenance & lusts the architecture of New Orleans. All three are just fine and relatively congruent to the current Universe.
