|Poetry| REBECCA ARONSON is the winner of the Orison Books prize for her second collection, Ghost Child of the Atalanta Bloom, out in early 2017. She teaches writing, hosts the CNM annual visiting writers series, facilitates a community and student writing group, and walks her dog. She has been awarded a Prairie Schooner Strousse award, The Loft Speakeasy prize, and had had several poems nominated for Pushcart Prizes.
|Music| MAURO WOODY, a native of Albuquerque, draws upon the influence of the desert to create soundscapes that marry texture and story. When not playing guitar, you can find her wearing wigs, playing bass, and time traveling. She loves foxes and hanging out with Mike Smith of Albuquerque.
|Nonfiction| JENNIFER SCHALLER is a college English instructor who teaches at CNM. She is a person-parent-teacher-woman-wife-being by day (in that order), and a writer by either late night or early morning, depending on when her children are asleep. Also, Jennifer doesn’t sleep. Her writing has appeared on NPR’s This American Life; Ascent Magazine; Georgetown Review; Sonora Review; Brain, Child magazine; and Literary Mama. She currently devotes her writing time to a book-length memoir.
