L. R. Laverde-Hansen received his BA from Concordia College. Among his various literary endeavors, he’s completed three plays. One of them, Kill The Beast, was performed in NYC in June of 2007. He proudly says seeing actors read his words before a live audience was the most intense creative experience of his adult life and claims he almost “died of joy” right there. He’s now working on an epic Shakespearean Historical drama titled Charles XII, King of Sweden. This play has more than thirty-speaking roles, runs over a hundred pages, and will make Kill The Beast seem like a walk in the park. His only comment on this upcoming work is, “What can I say? Artists are crazy.” He’ll try to premiere a staged reading next winter.
Rachel Therres is a poet, artist, educator, and would eat ice cream every day of the year if she could. Her poetry is breaking into her most silent places, both terrifying and freeing. She co-organizes for both Suffern Poetry and NYC Urbana slam. 2015 will mark her third year competing at the National Poetry Slam. Her core beliefs are that poetry saves lives and that joy is found in mint tins filled with watercolor paint. She is a Baltimore girl in a New York world.
