Linzi Garcia can be found frolicking through sunflower fields, cemeteries, and bars across the states. Her poetry has been featured in five anthologies and can be found in nooks in trees near you. Her full length poetry collection Thank You was published by Spartan Press in 2018. She is currently working on a chapbook of her experiences while in England. Linzi is pursuing her master's in English at Emporia State University, where she works in the literary publishing center and as the assistant to Kevin Rabas. Linzi also works as a reporter for The Emporia Gazette. She is always looking to invest time in new places where she can absorb new perspectives.
Macey Webb writes a potent and poignant poetic memoir of the loss of Webb's partner to cancer from diagnosis to death and then the aftermath of those left behind. This genuine and intimate experience of grief is raw without dramatics, devastating while resilient, and manages to keep the sense of humor that shows our deepest humanity.
