ALEXA BRAHME was born and raised in San Diego, California. She studied creative writing at Vanderbilt University and NYU. She currently lives in Brooklyn, but dreams of living on a boat in Italy where all she would have to do is write, swim, and eat burrata.

CODY ROSS ROMERO is a New Mexican poet living in New York. His work attempts to encounter the sacred in the daily—what we might be inclined to miss because we are too busy, or worse, too distracted. Cody’s poetry has appeared in the chapbook MACK produced by Raptor Editing. He is currently a Michele Tolela Myers Graduate Fellow for students whose writing is of exceptional strength and promise. In January of 2018, he represented Sarah Lawrence as a Fellow at the Palm Beach Poetry Festival. He received his MFA from Sarah Lawrence College this month.
