Jeff Cottrill is a fiction writer, journalist, and spoken-word artist based in Toronto, Canada. His performance style is influenced by slam conventions, but subverts them with wit, ironic humour and a satirical tone. He has headlined in countless literary series throughout Canada, the U.K. and the U.S. over the last twenty years. In the past several months, he has been published in several international anthologies from New York to Australia. Jeff has authored four chapbooks and recorded three CDs, and he has recently finished his seventh or eighth attempt at a first novel.

Caroline Morgan Di Giovanni has written poetry all her life. One night in 2008 she read a few poems at a local café. A member of the audience asked her to send him a manuscript. Turns out he was a partner in Quattro Books; within a few months they published her first book, Looking at Renaissance Paintings and Other Poems. Eventually another book came out, called Second Collection (2013). Her first chapbook, Portrait Gallery, was a product of the pandemic lockdown 2020. Caroline edited and wrote the introductions for three anthologies of prose and poetry by Italian Canadian writers: Italian Canadian Voices (1984); Italian Canadian Voices revised (2006) and Bravo! (2012). Her poems have been included in other anthologies, magazines, and online.

Ermira Mitre Kokomani is a bilingual poet, essayist and translator from Albania living in New Jersey. Her  poetry has appeared in various international and national poetry anthologies and journals as: Jerry Jazz Musician, Red Wheelbarrow Poets Journals, THE POET’S anthologies, Live Encounters, Kistrech Poetry Festival, Mediterranean Poetry, Montclair Write Group, etc. She has published a book of poetry in Albanian, and is submitting a second one for publication. Ermira is also completing the first English collection Blooming as a Sacred Lotus while working on another bilingual one. She has translated the fiction novel The King’s Shadow from Albanian into English.
