Felix has loved poetry for most of his life after falling in love with the spaces between words when he was 8 years old. His first book of poetry “Did You Even Know I Was Here?” was released in 2018, and he is working on his next book “Exorcism” due to be released in 2023.
Marron is the associate editor of Beltway Poetry Quarterly and the author of “Reasons for the Long Tu’m”, “Nothing You Build Here, Belongs Here”, and “Call Me Spes”. Her work has been published widely and is available at www.saracahillmarron.com.
Tokaji is a choreographer, performance artist, and author of the activist memoir “Six Women in a Cell” and the intimate resource book “SURVIVING ASSAULT–Words that Rock & Quiet & Tell the Truth”. She won the Sonia Sanchez-Langston Hughes Poetry Award in 2020.
