TED JONATHAN

Ted Jonathan is a poet and short story writer.  Born and raised in the Bronx, he lives in Manhattan. His work has appeared in numerous literary magazines. His chapbook SPIKED LIBIDO was published by Neukeia Press. A full-length collection BONES & JOKES has been published by NYQ Books (2009).

Thad RUTKOWSKI

Thaddeus Rutkowski is the author of the novels Tetched and Roughhouse. Both books were finalists for an Asian American Literary Award. His third novel, Haywire, is forthcoming from Starcherone Books. He has been the fiction and nonfiction editor of the journal Many Mountains Moving since 2007 and teaches fiction writing at the Writer’s Voice of the West Side YMCA.

SAVONNA SMITH

Savonna Smith, also known as Sic Poet is the mother of two not-quite-human teenage actors, and was born and raised in Newark, NJ. She began writing poetry at the ripe old age of 4 and was almost expelled in the third grade for her novel rendition of “Roses Are Red [Violets Are Puke].” The reaction from her teachers and the faculty inspired her to perform and she subsequently enrolled in the fine and industrial arts high school in Newark and has been performing ever since. She is published in several magazines including The New York Quarterly and The Times Square Shout Out. She released a CD in 2007 entitled “Sic Life” and is currently the owner of Joaquin Omari Management.
