Tony Burfield, originally from the Appalachians, now lives with his wife in the Southern Rockies. When not running wild in the hills, he reads, writes, and pulls knapweed. His poetry has recently appeared in Modern Haiku, Frogpond, and the Lilliput Review. His new chapbook of haibun, Torrents, is forthcoming from Tiger’s Eye Press, Spring 2015.
Ellie Haberl is currently pursuing a PhD in literacy education researching emotion in school writing. As a child, Ellie was often found in sequined costumes writing stories and covering everything in glitter in the tiny crawl space under the stairs; she can still be found wearing outrageous hats and looking beneath her boot soles for a scrap of paper or a tiny pebble to place in her leather bag, the whisper of the next great story.
