About the Authors:

Jamel Brinkley is the author of A Lucky Man, a stunning debut story collection that reflects the tenderness and vulnerability of black men and boys whose hopes sometimes betray them—especially in a world shaped by race, gender, and class. Brinkley was raised in the Bronx and Brooklyn, NY, and is a graduate of Columbia University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. His work has received fellowships from Kimbilio Fiction and the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing.

Tarfia Faizullah is the author of Registers of Illuminated Villages, an urgent and highly-anticipated poetry collection that transforms her powerful accounts of violence, war, and loss into poems of many forms and voices—elegies, outcries, self-portraits, and larger-scale confrontations with discrimination, family, and memory. Faizullah is also the author of Seam, winner of the VIDA Awards and a Great Lakes Colleges Association New Writers Award. She teaches at the University of Michigan and lives in Ann Arbor. 

Wayétu Moore is the author of the forthcoming novel She Would Be King, a powerful and exhilarating retelling of Liberia’s formation told through three unforgettable characters who share an uncommon bond. Moore is the founder of One Moore Book and is a graduate of Howard University, Columbia University, and the University of Southern California. She teaches at the City University of New York’s John Jay College and lives in Brooklyn. Moore is currently at work on a memoir titled Dragons, Giant, Women, also forthcoming from Graywolf.
