About Us

We like to think we are the inky space of the universe that allows stars to shine. We are the blackground for poets and writers to showcase their works.

Here's the staff that makes this possible:

Editor-in-Chief & Founder: Natasha Andreil is a fellow poet and loves editing (even the weird flyers folks post in bathroom stalls). She hails from the Lou and studied the art of neo-epics and poetry at Naropa and Chatham Universities. She earned a B.A. in English with an Emphasis in Creative Writing from Webster University. She was a reader at the Hungry Young Poet Summer Reading Series, sponsored by River Styx Literary Magazine. Natasha is published with Poetry.com, The Ampersand, The Green Fuse, Whistling Shade, Boulder Weekly, and the African American Review.
