Gabe
Gabe Moses is a five-time member of the Art Amok Slam Team, a former member of the Berkeley Slam Team, and the 2012 Capturing Fire champion.

Lindsay
Lindsay Stone has been a member of slam teams between 1998- 2014 representing Birmingham, Bama Slam (Montevallo), Dallas Pugsley's, Ann Arbor, MI, and Art Amok (Atlanta, Ga).

She is credited to brining the first Southern Fried Regionals to Birmingham, AL and was a key force in reviving the legendary Ann Arbor Poetry Slam.

Lindsay was one of the first out Transgender poets involved in the Nation Poetry Slam, and in 2014 she brought the first every Transgender side event to the National Poetry Slam called Gender Outlaws.

She often refers to herself as a Queer poet, and this is evident in her dedication to Queer and trans topics. Her words are not pretty, they have teeth and are vicious, but most importantly they are important.

Talicha
Talicha J. is a poet and an aspiring novelist. She’s currently living the true artist’s lifestyle—waiting tables by day, writing and performing by night. In 2015 Johnson released her debut collection of poems, Falling in Love with Picking Myself up. She takes her coffee with cream and an obscene amount of sugar, has only seen one Star Wars movie in it’s entirety yet still considers herself a nerd, and takes pride in her ability to read a trilogy in less than one week (see, she is a nerd).
