Writer Justin Grimbol
Justin Grimbol moves around a lot. He is currently residing in West Racine. He is the author of four books. DRINKING UNTIL MORNING(Black Coffee Press). THE CRUD MASTERS(Eraserhead Press). THE PARTY LORDS(Grindhouse Press). THE CREEK(Ra Press). Sometimes he smells bad, but that can be kinda fun. He went to college for while, then he stopped going to college. He works sometimes. He doesn’t like Super Hero movies. He was raised by ministers. Certain hymns make him cry.
Erinn Batykefer is a writer and a librarian. She earned her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has won a variety of shi-shi sounding named fellowships and awards, including the Benjamin Saltman Poetry Prize for her first collection, Allegheny, Monongahela. She’s the co-founder and editor of the Library as Incubator Project in addition to her day job as a librarian, and, like a complete crazy person, is currently at work on 3 books, all in different genres. The most incredible thing about this whole fiasco is that Erinn manages to do this without the aid of stimulants. Not even coffee.
