Wyl Villacres has a formal education in fiction and taught himself essay writing. He feels like a parent unable to choose which he loves more. He holds a MFA from Sierra Nevada College, along with a tremendous amount of student loan debt. He is the author of the chapbook, Bottom of the Ninth. His prose skews towards the weird, and occasionally dips into the magical realism spectrum. His stories have appeared in The Rumpus, Hobart Pulp, and Wildness, among others. Wyl was included in the 2014 Best of the Net anthology and was a notable selection for Best American Essays in 2015. He writes what he needs to write, whether it be about racism or love or mental health. He also bartends in Chicago.
Categorizing her book collection is the only part of Daisy King’s life that is in perfect order. The rest is chaos. She resides in London, where she recently received her Master’s Degree in Social Cognition and Neuroscience from University of College London. Her print anthology, Brainstorms, is available on Kindle. She has been featured in the inaugural issue of Wildness. Some of her other writings can be found in a readable anthology. She has also written a piece about her experience with psychosis. Daisy’s other hobbies include film production, making her own t-shirts (which often feature members of the Beat Generation), and photography.
She is currently conceiving a screenplay for her filmmaking course, which is going to be based on conversations that she has had with individuals over the past few years.
