Samiya Bashir’s books of poetry, Field Theories (Spring 2017), Gospel, and Where the Apple Falls, and anthologies, including Role Call: A Generational Anthology of Social & Political Black Literature & Art, exist. Sometimes she makes poems of dirt. Sometimes zeros and ones. Sometimes variously rendered text. Sometimes light. She lives in Portland, Ore, with a magic cat who shares her obsessions with trees and blackbirds and occasionally crashes her classes and poetry salons at Reed College.

Julie Perini makes experimental and documentary videos and films. Her short-form personal works are autobiographical, self-reflective, and expressive. Her documentary feature films are produced within and alongside contemporary social movements. You might like to treat yourself to a peak at her daily & monthly video project, the Minute Movies. She is co-director, with Jodi Darby and Erin Yanke, of the documentary feature film, Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon (2015) distributed by Collective Eye Films.

Rosana Ybarra is an interdisciplinary artist currently preoccupied with:

deep conditioning and the ways in which systems of power / control become internalized,

expelling internalized systems via counter methods,

unlearning cultural hegemony.

failing at the above.

redefining success.
