Chris Campanelli is from the poetically impoverished Washington, D.C., where the cultural imagination is reared on campaign slogans and calculated slurs.  Fortunately, he has been twice transplanted: once into the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia (Charlottesville), and once to Vancouver, BC, where he currently lives, writes, and gawks at his neighborhoods stately elm, beech, and cypress trees, alongside his wife Sallie and their daughter Beatrice. 

Derek Witten was born and raised in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, but now currently lives in East Vancouver. He recently completed his MA at Regent College, where he now works as a writer and editor.

Volume II

Katrina Murphy was born near Flathead Lake in northwest Montana, and her imagination – and therefore her writing – has never quite left behind its mountains and its skies. She graduated from Trinity Western University with a B.A. in English (2014) and currently lives in Washington state, working, procrastibaking, and thinking about time travel. Time travel is crazy, man.

Natalie McNeill graduated from Trinity Western University (Communications 2012), and has been writing ever since. She frequently approaches strange dogs on the street and infrequently tweets from @nataliedawnmc.

Megan Drevets graduated from Trinity Western University in 2012 with a degree in Linguistics and has since lived and worked in South Korea, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Originally from Oregon, she currently lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, where, besides attending cèilidhs, she is working on an MSc in Speech-Language Pathology.

Kat Grabowski is a photographer and designer from the Fraser Valley of BC who is obsessed with mountains, pretty lighting, and purple hair. A weekend warrior at heart, Kat is a freelancer during the week and an outdoor explorer on the weekends, carrying her camera with her everywhere and documenting all of her adventures on her blog artandtheaerialist.com



Volume I

Cameron Reed graduated from Trinity Western University (Geography 2013) where he fell in love with ancient wisdom and his wife, Jodi. He has published poems in [spaces] Literary Journal, but hopes to publish his own collection. He lives in Seattle, Washington where he gardens, writes poetry and tries to build stuff out of wood. The Reeds are planning to move to the Democratic Republic of Congo in January 2015. Follow their travels at camandjoreed.blogspot.com.

Derek Witten graduated from Trinity Western University (English 2013), and then moved to Ottawa for a year, where he worked in political communications. He is now back in British Columbia plugging away at his Masters of Divinity at Regent College. He loves nothing better than a weekend in a kayak or strapped to a hiking backpack, exploring the BC wilderness.

Christoph Sanz was born and raised in Vancouver, graduating from Trinity Western University with a B.A. in English last year. He now splits his time between the flat farmlands of Southern Ontario and the exuberant highlands of Central Guatemala. His passions are also split between written words and food, creating and consuming his fair share of both. 

Will Davies is a perpetual wanderer, roaming North America and settling briefly in various Canadian towns. He has a B.A. in Political Studies, but is more interested in the politics of desire and the geography of the heart. He can be found online at estuaryhymns.tumblr.com

Tim Andries lives on the prairies of Alberta where he makes pictures in between working on the oil and gas wells that dot the landscape. He earned a B.A. in Communications from Trinity Western University (2013) and will be attending woodworking school on the Sunshine Coast in the spring. His photography was recently featured by the Great North Collective and his website is: www.timandries.ca.

Cameron, Derek, Christoph, and Will would like to warmly thank their delightful and constructive editing panel:
Jessica Walters, Natalie McNeill, and Katrina Murphy.
