Cassandra Dallett lives in Oakland, CA. Cassandra is a Pushcart nominee and reads often around the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to several chapbooks, she has published online and in many print magazines such as Slip Stream, Sparkle and BlinkThe Bicycle Review, Chiron Review, River Babble, and Up The River. A full-length book of poetry, Wet Reckless, was released from Manic D Press in May 2014.

Rohan DaCosta is an art school dropout from Chicago, who has become an active member of the Oakland arts and literary community and is very grateful to have been so welcomed. He is a devoted artisan whose projects range from film, music, fiction writing, and clothing design. You can see his work at

Inspired by the mesmerizing sounds of Lianne La Havas and the soulfulness in the music of Allen Stone, Azuah is underway of making her debut in the music world as an alternative folk and blues artist with just the right touch of soul. Her emotionally provocative songwriting in juxtaposition with her haunting melodies captivates her audiences from the first note until the last strum.
