NA'AMEN TILAHUN is a writer of poems, stories and other things. Some of them get published, this makes him happy. His debut novel The Root will be out this June for Night Shade Books. He makes a mean panna cotta.

DAMIAN LEDBETTER is a gender pragmatic theology student and a proud graduate of the Orange County foster care system. As a California Arts Scholar, his culminating project, “The Fucking Hat,” focused on erotic Harry Potter fanfiction.” Apropos of this evening’s theme, his sexual identity is tweed with leather patches." He will bring it at Write Club with literary fierceness and be killing it with his adorable smile.

She is currently in the first year of her fiction MFA at the California College of the Arts, and writes plays for production at Berkeley Rep through playground SF.
