Miah Jeffra is author of four books of prose, most recently The Violence Almanac and the forthcoming novel American Gospel. Work can be seen in StoryQuarterly, Prairie Schooner, The North American Review, Barrelhouse, DIAGRAM, The Greensboro Review, and others. Miah is co-founder of Whiting Award-winning queer and trans literary collaborative, Foglifter Press, and teaches writing and decolonial studies at Santa Clara University and Central Washington University.
A North Bay native, Sabina Piersol declared herself a writer in 6th grade after writing a “sequel” to the 1956 YA novel Escape from Warsaw titled “Bronia: An Orphaned Victim of War,” basing the bad guys on boys she didn’t like in her class and essentially inventing fan fiction. Sabina began writing for the stage in 2008 with the sketch comedy group Killing My Lobster where she was a company member for four years; she has since had over a dozen short plays produced locally with Shotz SF, The Arabian Shakespeare Festival, and the SF Olympians Festival. In another life, she was awarded a fellowship for her translations of modern Italian poetry, so long ago that it feels weird even bringing it up. She is honored and excited to be included among tonight’s writers.
Jacques J. Rancourt is the author of two poetry collections, Brocken Spectre (Alice James Books, 2021) and Novena (winner of the Lena-Miles Wever Todd prize, Pleiades Press, 2017), as well as a chapbook, In the Time of PrEP (Chad Walsh Series, Beloit Poetry Journal, 2018). A recipient of a Wallace Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University and a Halls Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing, his poems have appeared in AGNI, Boston Review, Kenyon Review, New England Review, and Virginia Quarterly Review, among others. Raised in Maine, he lives now in San Francisco.
