Managing Editor

Rebecca Haven was born and raised in St. Paul, MN. After spending six years in Cleveland, OH, she realized the Twin Cities isn't so bad-the rivers in the Twin Cities don't catch fire. Rebecca lives in Minneapolis, MN with her un-creatively named cat, kitty and whatever friend ends up on the couch for the night. Rebecca has been published in Haute Dish, Double Dare Press, STC-TC and The Metropolitan. Someday she hopes to actually get paid to write.

Associate Editors

Joshua Fischer is much more than a writer. He is also a beloved son, a big brother, a theologist, a mind-bender, an activist, a self-taught cymbal percussionist, a cement truck driver, a liar, a Shaolin Sword-style fighter, a Hulk-a-maniac, and, above all a typical wise-guy.

N. Jeanne Burns lives in Minneapolis with her partner Liz. She writes where she can find a power outlet for her laptop, iPod and cell phone. Her muse, on the other hand, prefers to inspire her when she's in the bathroom. Jeanne has been published in Haute Dish, Northography and Spout. She plans to graduate in December.

Christine Liebeg is a robot disguised as a college student who adores Transformers, learning about all things, and writing to her heart's content.  She works in IT for Metro State and likes to create mayhem and dirty socks in her spare time. She currently resides in the small town of Hampton with her adopted human family and is working towards completing her creative writing degree.

Jessie Ness lives in St. Paul with her husband and two cats. Through trial and error she has learned that doing any type of work at home is impossible with all of the distractions. Her hobbies include reading, writing and, pardon the cliché, shopping. She is currently working on her first novel.

louis murphy likes writing.  he also likes snow cones and puppy dogs. and nuclear fusion.  he likes action flicks that drool the doldrums and romances where everybody smokes.  he finds them both hilarious.  louis is still interested in why the word "weird" is spelled so strangely.  and he likes cute fluffy bunnies, raucous crows, and cows that fart (is there any
other kind?).

Debra Kelly is a junior at Metropolitan State University and is on the one-class-a-semester, 10-year plan. She lives near Como Park with her teenage daughter, Faith, a cat named Ivan and, occasionally, her son Dylan (who spends most of his days on the U of M campus). "I love living near the Park," she says, "It's one of the few places in the western hemisphere one can sit on one's front porch and hear lions roar!"
