Neelanjana Banerjee's writing has been published in the Asian Pacific American Writers' Journal, Kitchen Sink, Nimrod, Ellipsis, Suspect Thoughts and others. She is putting the finishing touches on her MFA thesis for San Francisco State University, a collection of short fiction entitled "Misbehaving." She also works as an editor and journalist for non-profit media organization New America Media and Hyphen magazine.

Summi Kaipa has authored several chapbooks, including "The Epics" (Leroy Press), "One: I Beg You Be Still" (Belladonna), and most recently "The Language Parable" (Corollary Press). For eight years, she was the editor of Interlope, a magazine publishing innovative writing by Asian Americans, and in 2002, she received a Potrero Nuevo Fund Prize to write and produce her first play. Once a resident of SF's bustling Mission District, Kaipa now resides in a quiet neighborhood in North Berkeley, where she studies for a doctorate in psychology, cooks delicious meals, and makes slow progress on her first full-length manuscript. Occasionally, she emerges from her shell to charm friends and admirers with a benshi or a reading.
