17th – 21st June 2019

Tuesday: Marta Salek, Issue 7

Marta Salek lives out in the hills of Australia with her partner and assorted fluffy roosters, chickens, sheep, alpacas, and one dog (who may or may not have fleas). When not working, she passes the time trying to grow vegetables and running over irrigation pipe with her ride-on mower. In a past life, she spent her days programming (or screaming at) computers and writing lengthy emails which were reported to give her managers headaches. Now, she’s more gainfully occupied as a nurse, which legitimately allows her to amuse herself by asking people about their bowel habits. Marta’s computer is infested with short stories and a handful of novels at varying stages of completion. Some of the former have appeared in
publications such as Aurealis, SF&F, Perihelion SF and Freeze Frame Fiction. The latter lurk. And wait.

Wednesday: Mary Rykov, Issue 2 & 9

Mary H Auerbach Rykov is a Toronto-based music therapist, editor, and educator whose research, poems and songs are found in literary and academic journals. Mary serves as proofreader for Pulp Literature and freelances as a scholarly-academic editor. 

Thursday: Matilda Berke, Issue 17

Matilda Berke has been recognized by YoungArts, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, the LA Tomorrow Prize, the Molotov Cocktail’s Shadow Award, and the LA Youth Poet Laureate competition, among others. She will be double majoring in English and Economics at Wellesley College. In her free time, she hopes to take up sailing and to read as many books as possible.
