Kati Stevens is working assiduously on her first novel, tentatively titled Nightwolves. In the process she has learned much about llamas, morels, and is sad to say that bits of chocolate have interred themselves in her keyboard. She recently won an NPR contest in which she had to pretend to be an Oscar nominee giving an acceptance speech. "Palms" is the first poem she has published in quite a number of years, so if you'd like to see more of her writing, you can either check it out here, or start up a petition and send it to your local Congressperson demanding that he or she make it punishable by law for literary journals to reject Kati's writing. Either way. You can reach her here.
Nisha Susan is a 27-year-old writer who currently lives in New Delhi. She was part of her parents' luggage to Africa and the Middle East but has spent most of her life in the happy babel of Bangalore. Deluded by a brochure, she spent two years trying to study journalism. She has worked in non-profits turning out alternately bald and sentimental prose. She has also worked for some educational institutions in a spirit of grinning mutual tolerance. She has also moonlighted as a teacher of English to Thai and Indian teenagers.
Her poetry has been published in the Journal of the Poetry Society of India. Her fiction is beginning to see the light of day. In 2006 she won a national contest for young writers organised by Toto Funds the Arts, a small but fierce arts foundation. She is a still-sceptical blogger. Her interests include contemporary poetry, comic fiction and the order of some things.
