Fred Dodsworth has edited or published more than a dozen magazines and newspapers and three books on California Indians. Six years ago, he decided to go to college, graduating magna cum laude from SFSU in 2013 with a bachelors in creative writing (concentration in gender studies). Now, he’s finishing his masters. Formerly, he was a high-school drop out, front-page daily columnist (SF Examiner), award-winning art director, sandal maker, and truck driver (not in that order). He was fortunate enough to work with renown designer Roger Black and to publish work by Alan Ginsberg, June Jordon, Kim Addonizio, Amy Wallace, Garrison Keillor, Corby Kummer, Ginu Kamani, and many other accomplished and beginning writers.

Cassandra Dallett lives in Oakland, CA. Cassandra is a Pushcart nominee and reads often around the San Francisco Bay Area. She was the winner of the March 2015 Literary Death Match. In addition to six chapbooks, she has published online and in many print magazines and anthologies, such as Slip Stream, Sparkle and Blink, The Bicycle Review, Chiron Review, and This Is Poetry: Women of The Small Press. A full-length book of poetry, Wet Reckless was released to good reviews, from Manic D Press in May of 2014. A new book, Bad Sandy, will be released in spring of 2015.

There is ample street parking, but just to make it easy, there is an O'Reilly Auto Parts/Walgreens on the corner of Fruitvale and Foothill with a huge parking lot. Here's a Google Map link:'Reilly+Auto+Parts/@37.789393,-122.233008,14z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1so+reilly+auto+parts+near+Foothill+Blvd,+Oakland,+CA!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xa74c9fbc2152bd68

Nomadic Press should show up on that map as well. We are just in between Austin and Rutherford on Foothill.

Hope to see you soon!
