ABOUT YOUR READERS
ERIN HOSIER is the author of the memoir Don't Let Me Down (Atria, 2019), and the coauthor of Hit So Hard by Patty Schemel (Da Capo, 2017). She has been a literary agent since 2001 (currently with Dunow Carlson & Lerner), and was an original co-host of the Literary Death Match. As an agent, she primarily works with authors of nonfiction and has a special interest in popular culture, music biography, humor, and women's history (and untold stories of all kinds). In general, novels with happy endings put her in a bad mood. She grew up in rural Ohio, and lives in Brooklyn.
JIORDAN CASTLE is a writer, content strategist, and an MFA candidate in poetry at Hunter College in New York City. Her work has appeared in Bitterzoet Magazine, Vinyl, Verdad, Brain Mill Press, Frontera, and elsewhere online and in print. She is a reader for Cagibi and a regular contributor to the LA-based quarterly food and culture print magazine Compound Butter. You can find her at jiordancastle.com.
KYLE DILLON HERTZ is the Writer in the Public Schools Fellow at NYU, where he's an MFA candidate in fiction. He lives in Brooklyn.
BERNARD FERGUSON is a Bahamian immigrant, poet and MFA candidate at New York University. He is an Assistant Editor at Washington Square Review, a three-time Pushcart Prize nominee, and has had work published or forthcoming in Winter Tangerine, The Adroit Journal, Pinwheel, SLICE Magazine and the Best New Poets 2017 anthology, among others. Unfortunately, his most pressing goal is to convince you that, more than winter, fall is a god-awful season.
