Tarik Dobbs (b. 1997, Dearborn, Michigan) is a writer, artist, and recipient of the Poetry Foundation’s Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellowship. Their poetry is featured in the Best New Poets and Best of the Net anthologies and has appeared in AGNI, The Poetry Review, Poetry Magazine, and other publications. Dobbs is the director of poetry.onl and has served as a guest editor for Mizna and Zoeglossia: A Community for Poets with Disabilities. They earned an MFA in creative writing from the University of Minnesota and are currently pursuing another MFA in art, theory, and practice at Northwestern University. Their debut poetry collections, Nazar Boy and Dearbornistan, are set to be published by Haymarket Books in June 2024 and 2026, respectively.

Morisha Moodley (b. 1998, Durban, South Africa) is a London and Chicago-based moving image artist who works across video, installation, and text, examining the entanglement of race, queerness, disability, and theology through these forms. Their practice is rooted in research of the moving image. To this, they interject queer and crip methodologies that challenge traditional film structures. Their work has been screened and exhibited internationally, including at London Short Film Festival, Kasseler Dokfest, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Global Citizen, and Camden Art Centre. Morisha is a recipient of a Develop Your Creative Practice grant from Arts Council England, AfA’s micro-grant, and was awarded the Northwestern University Fellowship to attend the 2023 Flaherty Film Seminar. They graduated from Central Saint Martins with a First in BA (Hons) Fine Art.

Jonathon Rosemond (b. 1995, Irving, Texas) is an artist working in sculpture, sound and installation. Rosemond’s practice is a collision of disparate material; a mixtape, a medley, a portmanteau, that generates worlds and makes myths. He received his BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and has exhibited work in many art spaces throughout the Twin Cities, including Midway Contemporary Art, and Public Functionary.
