SARA OLIVER WIGHT
Sara Oliver Wight is a Brooklyn based model, author, and aspiring lesbian farmer. Her current work focus is how to convey queer femme sexuality through noodles and sandwiches. Her work can be found on vice.com, in the Resilience anthology and on her Instagram @saraoliverwight

A.K. BLUE
Andreia Kundry Blue lives in the Hudson Valley. She writes science fiction, trans fiction, and eccentric mash-ups of the two. Her story in Resilience, “God Empress Susanna,” is part of her work in progress, Sea of Nightmares, a collection of linked SF stories. She is a graduate of the Odyssey Writing Workshop and a member of the Brooklyn Trans Writing Workshop.

TYLER VILE
Tyler Vile is a writer, performer, and activist from Baltimore, MD whose novel-in-verse, Never Coming Home, is available on Topside Press. She is a member of the board of Hinenu: The Baltimore Justice Shtiebl, a radically inclusive synagogue, and was the vocalist in a punk band called Anti-Androgen. Her interactive poetry zine, Hassidic Witch Murderer is available on her website, tylervile.wordpress.com. Her work has appeared in the Lambda Literary Award nominated anthology, Resilience, published by Heartspark Press, as well as the magazines Femmescapes, Beltway Poetry Quarterly, and Rogue Agent. She hopes to one day become the world’s greatest transsexual lesbian yenta.

SUGI PYRROPHYTA
Sugi works against the hegemony that academic institutions have on knowledge and that financial institutions have on power, specifically the roles that capital and obedience to oppressive structures play in upholding/withholding those institution and the rewards. She has been working most of her life on collecting stories of the lived experience of those most oppressed while attempting to make impossible the powers that hold us down. She knows first-hand and viscerally how hard it is to carve out time/energy to create while fighting every step for her and her friends’ survival, and has no further accolades to dress herself in here because you can do anything, you don’t need a fancy degree or an income or to have been published before; you are the fire that keeps us warm.
