Lynarra Featherly holds a BA in the Liberal Arts from St. John’s College where her primary foci were philosophy and literature. Her writing is interested in questions of social and familial othering, agency and affect, muck and ethereality. These questions come together in her work in the way writing can open things up and allow for or constrain movement beyond what looks like it should be possible in the use of language in the everyday. Her writing works with the sense of a dialectical possibility between freedom and constraint, between anarchy and culture—to be with or without words.


Travis Sharp‘s writing has appeared with or is forthcoming from Pacifica Literary ReviewCircle, ink&coda, of/with, MadHat Lit, and Crack the Spine, among others. He has a BA in English from Athens State University where he founded and edited an arts and sciences journal and was a founding member and assistant director of the theatre company The Athenian Players. He works in cross/post-genre writing, experimental prose, and book arts.

Her work has appeared in Lyceum.
