Chavez is co-founder/curator of the reading series Lyrics & Dirges, co-director of the Berkeley Poetry Festival.

Her writing and artwork have appeared in [PANK], Ninth Letter, The Acentos Review, Gulf Stream, Saw Palm, Third Coast, Duende, Moko Caribbean Arts & Letters, 300 Days of Sun, Ink Brick, and Sakura Review, among others. She is a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s MFA program and lives in Florida with her partner and their two cats.
+ Wendy-O Matik is a poet, writer, activist, and the author of Love Like Rage (with manic d press) and Redefining Our Relationships (with Defiant Times Press). Back in the 90s, you could find her doing spokenword in the Bay Area punk scene and touring with various punk bands in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Wendy has also coauthored nine mindfulness meditation books for New Harbinger Publications and is currently pounding down the virtual doors of publishers to get her feminist-anarchist graphic novel out in the world. Today, she lives on an organic farm in Santa Rosa, CA, where the farm animals outnumber the humans.
