Vernon Keeve III is a Virginia born writer. He currently lives and teaches in Oakland. His purpose is to teach the next generation the importance of relaying their personal narratives, sharing their experiences, and taking control of their destinies. He holds a MFA from CCA, and a MA in Teaching Literature from Bard College. His full-length collection of poetry, Southern Migrant Mixtape, was published by Nomadic Press last year.

Stephen van Dyck is a writer, performer, organizer and educator. An MFA graduate of Integrated Media, Critical Studies and Experimental Sound Practices at CalArts, van Dyck has performed and presented work all around Los Angeles. Since 2008, van Dyck has curated the Los Angeles Road Concerts, all-day arts events where over 300 LA artists and locals have re-imagined unused public space. On his radio show "Customer Care" on KChung Radio, van Dyck calls debt collectors, telemarketers and customer service agents, and through an episodic narrative about his debts and defaulted loans, they converse about his and their personal lives. His first book, People I've Met From the Internet, is forthcoming from Ricochet Editions in May 2019.
