Kyle Lukoff used to be a librarian, and before that he worked at Barnes and Noble, but now he writes books for kids and other people. @KyleLukoff on twitter.

Trina Sanyal is a writer and artist living in Philly. By day, Trina works in children’s media, and by night, when energy allows, Trina writes and draws comics for their loved ones and themself. Mostly, they’re excited to build community with writers in Philly, and are largely bright eyed about all of you. They can be found telling a story for much longer than necessary, or telling a stranger that they “love love”. They thank “you can’t kill a poet” for having them today.

JuJu comes from a dark past filled with disappointment /abuse / and he is a suicide survivor. JuJu uses his voice to express his pain and thoughts so he can let others know they are not alone in their own pains.

Parker Sera is a queer Ashkenazic writer, actor, and theater maker from Minnesota living in Philly. She self-identifies as a horse girl and mostly writes about time and lakes. Parkersera.com

pony p. is an artist and poet based in west philly. a triple sagittarius, their work is the test tube baby of kate bush and trent reznor from nine inch nails.

He runs the You Can’t Kill A Poet reading series—which highlights queer and trans-identified writers in Philadelphia.
