Curtis Bonney

Curtis Bonney

Curtis Bonney has been teaching ESL at North Seattle Community College since 2005.
He is also a member of INTERRUPTURE, a group of experimental poets that performs text compositions structured as a game. Each piece follows a set of rules that determines who, what, where, when, and how a poet will read their verse as the play of the game unfolds. These rules might encourage silence, polyphony, erasure, repetition, modulation, and so on, making each game a unique event.

Emilia Kallock

Emilia Kallock

Emilia Rose Kallock is an artist who works in the medium of painting and drawing.
She makes large-format surreal paintings inspired by a diverse range of subjects dealing from current affairs and sexuality to work derived from plein air (outdoor) and portrait painting studies. Encompassing a very painterly and hand drawn approach, Kallock's work holds the mirror up to the feminine experience and gives order and added mystery to the barrage of mass media-fed images and information that confronts us daily. Kallock's early career as a florist continues to strongly influence her aesthetic and thematic approach.

Melanie Noel

Melanie Noel

Melanie Noel grew up in Oregon and lives in Seattle, Washington.  Her poems have appeared in Weekday, LVNG, La Norda Especialo and THE ARCADIA PROJECT. She's also written poems for short films and installations, and co-curated APOSTROPHE, a dance, music, and poetry series, with musician Gust Burns and dancers Michèle Steinwald and Beth Graczyk, and now curates IMPALA, a reading series that takes place in her grandmother's car.  She sometimes teaches experiential workshops meant to invoke synesthesia.
Melanie Noel was raised by a league of unusual North American marsupials.  Lacking a tail, she slept in an oak knoll while the rest of her family hung upside down.  Their dreams, having only one direction to go, landed in her head.  She's been recording them ever since.  She may be contacted for any emergency having to do with the imagination.
