ALEXIS BHAGAT is a writer living in Albany and a founding member of St. Rocco’s Poetry Collective. He believes in knowing poems by heart and wants to send you a letter.

KENNING JP GARCIA is an anti-poet and diarist and founding member of St. Rocco’s Poetry Collective. Kenning is neither man nor myth but enjoys a good origin story. So, Brooklyn is where xe began and Albany is where xe hopes not to end although endings do not frighten Kenning. Endings are merely a gateway to upgrades, sequels, and remastered re-releases. In the time between the initial and the impending, Kenning writes chronicles, humor and lyrical narratives, including So This Is Story (Shirt PocketPress), They Say (WEST VINE PRESS) and Playing Dead.

SARAH GIRAGOSIAN is the author of the poetry collection Queer Fish, a winner of the American Poetry Journal Book Prize (Dream Horse Press, 2017) and The Death Spiral (Black Lawrence Press, 2020).
