Kirsten Reneau author of Sensitive Creatures is a writer living in the south. She graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan College and received her MFA from the University of New Orleans. She is the author of two chapbooks, and her work has been published in The Threepenny Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, Reed Magazine, and others. Sensitive Creatures is her first full-length essay collection, forthcoming from Belle Point Press in 2024.

Diana Helmuth author of The Witching Year: A Memoir of Earnest Fumbling Through Modern Witchcraft writes about urges: to travel, to be in nature, and to feel understood. Her first book, How to Suffer Outside, was a National Outdoor Book Award winner, and her freelance work can be found in various anthologies, travel guides and humor magazines. She studied Anthropology and Arabic at UC Berkeley, and can often be caught moonlighting in Silicon Valley’s start-up land, or producing the occasional podcast. She was born and raised in Northern California.

Michael Allen Zell author of The Last Shadow is a New Orleans-based novelist, screenwriter, freelancer, and playwright. He is best known for his crime fiction series featuring Bobby Delery, a Tulane University Criminology professor, who is forced to right wrongs on the streets of New Orleans. The L.A. Review of Books praised with, “Zell demonstrates a gallows humor and a fine ear for entertainment…like the best crime fiction, the story invests deeply in setting, and it succeeds by virtue of its author’s palpable love for New Orleans and the people who live there.” Susan Larson in The Times-Picayune said, “What really keeps us turning pages is Zell’s authorial voice, his insights into human nature, and the dark sense of humor that comes out of observing city life.”
