Moss Hope Angel is a polynymous multi-media artist / writer / scorpio / musician / witch living in the pacific northwest. They create art compulsively because you have to have something, right? They are author of the Sea-Witch series of books, the third volume of which, Mare Piss Superkill, will be out this summer from 2fast2house. Their work deals with dogs, the way things break when you bend them, magic, the aesthetics of mess, “””gender”””, the boundaries we erect for ourselves & others, the boundaries others erect for us, erections in general, reality & perception, rats, time as a construct, systems of power & control, our hearts, communication, “””nature”””, anal, & death. They were born in Evansville, Indiana in 1984 & they now live with their wife & their rodents in a black house in Olympia, Washington.

RE Katz is a genderqueer glitch performer. They exhibited Boywitch Codex: Hypertexts as February 2017 Artist in Residence at Dreamland Arts in Buffalo, NY. They are interested in personal fashion, antifascist witchcraft, and television.



Chloe Rose’s gender is Rilke’s dark god: a webbed scrim made of a thousand roots drinking in silence. They are a fat, queer, femme, non-binary person-of-color living with disabilities and their cats Franz and Luna in Tacoma, WA. Rose has been published in The Wanderer, Dream Pop, and Aspasiology, with Pushcart and Bettering American Poetry nominations henny, so watch out!
