Jeanine U-C won last July’s Anarchy Poetry Slam. Two of her poems were published in last year’s Caesura, “Ash Wednesday February 14, 2018” in the paperback version and “Punks” in the online version. Jeanine published two chapbooks: “Allowed Aloud” in 2018, “Let Go of Detachment” in 2019. Another chapbook is forthcoming. Its title; “Too Pretty to Be Porn.” It’s taken her whole life to get to be this age.
Poet Laureate Emeritus of Sacramento, Indigo Moor‘s fourth book of poetry Everybody’s Jonesin’ for Something, took second place in the University of Nebraska Press’ Backwater Prize and will be published spring 2021. His second book, Through the Stonecutter’s Window, won Northwestern University Press’s Cave Canem prize. His first and third books, Tap-Root and In the Room of Thirsts & Hungers, were both part of Main Street Rag’s Editor’s Select Poetry Series. In addition to poetry, Indigo has produced award-winning plays, short fiction, and essays. His stage-turned-screenplay Live! at the Excelsior was optioned as a full-length film. He is a former teacher at the Stonecoast MFA Program and a Cave Canem fellow. Indigo sits on the advisory board for both the Modesto Stanislaus Poetry Center and the Sacramento Poetry Center. A 10-year veteran of the US Navy and a twice-decorated Gulf War Veteran, Indigo divides his time between writing, teaching, and Integrated Circuit Layout Engineering for computer companies.
