Colleen Colkitt















Colleen Colkitt is in her junior year at SUNY College at Brockport.  She studies Creative Writing, Communications, and Business Administration.  In between classes and work, Colleen spends her time behind the camera or editing footage at a computer for her school’s Television Production club.  While Ms. Colkitt spends time with her friends, she also steals time to add to her Origami paper crane collection and watch Netflix. 

With a preference towards satirical unrealistic fiction, Colleen takes inspiration for her work from friendships, family, and experiences with her coworkers.  One of the most influential authors for Ms. Colkitt has been Chuck Palahniuk.  Although she has tried to emulate his gritty style of writing, Colleen continues to search for her own voice through writing in isolation.  Ms. Colkitt’s plans for the future include writing more short fiction, as well as the completion of her manuscript for her first novel length piece.

Colleen has poetry published in Muddry River Poetry Review, Inclement Poetry, Bare Hands Poetry, and Poetry Bulawayo.  This is Ms. Colkitt’s first fiction publication.

Levi Stribling
















Name: Levi Stribling

AKA: L.P. Stribling

Levi Stribling is a writer of speculative fiction originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has been writing both poetry and prose since 2008. When he's not reading or dabbling in foreign tongues, he spends his time pondering the preposterous in search of unopened doors to the creative side. He is currently a graduate student of Middlebury College, and lives in Washington State with his wife Kerrie.

When writing poetry, Levi lets go of all restraint and allows the words to come, saving structure for the later drafts. Prose he approaches differently, using outlines for longer pieces and discovery-writing shorter ones. In the conviction that creativity reigns, Levi always allows the story to unfold as it will, leaving the structure and sense of it all to fall into place later. Levi is an austere proponent of the maxim, 'writing is re-writing and that there is no better teacher than experience.
