Our guest poetry editor TC Tolbert; I like walking up a mountain more than walking down; on the Enneagram, I’m a 1; I’m also a Capricorn; learning is infinitely more interesting to me than knowing (and scarier, too); along with my partner, I am wildly blessed to have two pit bulls who are willing to cuddle any time day or night; I am white; I was born and raised a girl in Hixson, TN as a speaking-in-tongues Pentecostal and I eventually came out as queer, feminist, anti-racist, and trans-masc; I wrestle-duet with these complicated and often contrasting social geographies every day; I never cease to experience a simultaneous horror and deep love any time I pay attention to the world.

 


 

Our editor for hybrid, Natasha Dennerstein (she/her) was born in Melbourne, Australia. She has an MFA from San Francisco State University. Natasha has had poetry published in many journals internationally. Her collections Anatomize (2015), Triptych Caliform (2016) and her novella-in-verse About a Girl (2017) were published by Norfolk Press in San Francisco. Her trans chapbook Seahorse (2017) was published by Nomadic Press in Oakland. She lives in Oakland, California, where she is an editor at Nomadic Press and works at St James Infirmary, a clinic for sex-workers in San Francisco. She was a 2018 Fellow of the Lambda Literary Writers Retreat.

 


In addition to submissions to our journal, Foglifter Press, Radar Production, and Still Here San Francisco are pleased to announce the Start A Riot! chapbook prize for local emerging queer and trans writers of color.
