Chelsea Tadeyeske is a poet, performer, and bookmaker from Milwaukee, WI. She is the founding editor of Pitymilk Press, publishing short-run chapbooks and journals both online and in physical form. Her work sits in the intersections of shame, trauma, and desire that are rooted in femininity trying to pin down the destructive reverberations of societal expectations and affectations. She has released many chapbooks including her most recent works of poetry, if you bend it backwards nothing really happens (Rabbit Catastrophe, 2016) and we were all born with the right to be angry (Bathmatics, 2016). https://chelseartadeyeskeblog.wordpress.com/about/
Edie Roberts is a genderqueer performer and activist currently living in Detroit, MI. They are the author of The Heel and The Face, Little Book of Shit, and The Roof is on Fire, among others. Their work is steeped in a characteristic American anxiety, searching for identity through cultural interrogation and radical vulnerability, then connected to global economic and environmental concerns with an activated desperation. http://edieroberts.wordpress.com/
Helena Fornells is an Edinburgh-based poet from Barcelona who writes in both English and Catalan. She works as a bookseller and freelance translator. Helena won the 2018 Oxford Brookes International Poetry Competition (EAL category). https://www.haranapoetry.com/i19-arenys-de-mar
