Susan Rebecca WHITE
Born and raised in Atlanta, Susan Rebecca White graduated from Brown University and received a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Hollins University, where she was awarded a teaching fellowship and the James Purdy Prize for outstanding fiction. Her debut novel, Bound South, a Southern Independent Booksellers Association (SIBA) bestseller, was shortlisted for the Townsend Award. Her second novel, A Soft Place to Land, was chosen as a Target pick and received wide critical acclaim, from the Atlanta-Journal Constitution to Vanity Fair magazine. Her third novel is slated for publication by Touchstone/Simon & Schuster in the spring of 2013.
Susan has been teaching creative writing at Emory University since 2009. She was the writer-in-resident at SCAD Atlanta during the winter of 2011.
Jason Mallory is the founder of Scene Missing magazine, which in the publishing world is like being the founder of a newspaper insert of Target coupons, or the founder of a Chipolte bag that's particularly descriptive of the burrito deliciousness that's contained within. Come to think of it, at least with the Chipolte bag you get to eat delicious food. Scene Missing Magazine offers no sour cream or salsa, or even guacamole. Jason lives in Atlanta.
Myke Johns, like presumably the rest of you, harbors niche interests. He's been able to parlay some of into a job as a public radio producer. When he's not busy being "intrepid," he's one of the evil nerds behind WRITE CLUB Atlanta and, despite being older than 19, persists at playing in a rock and roll band called Mice in Cars.
Okay, that got awkward. Sorry. He wrote this.
So that's it! Writers both rogue...and oddly self-deprecating. Don't let their modesty fool you; it'll be a wang-dang-doodle April 20th. All night long.* We warned you.
