Tracey Duncan mostly writes status updates, but when she isn’t wasting her finite textual energy on strangers, she writes for Vice and for her blog, which you’ve never heard of and is mostly about yoga and taking drugs. Tracey is queer, in all the ways that word means things, and single, for reasons that are probably obvious. She lives in Holy Cross with a cliche cache of pets, a lot of knitting yarn, and Maiden on vinyl.


Kristina Kay Robinson is a writer, curator, and visual artist born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her written, visual, and curatorial work centers the intellectual geographies of Black, Afro-Indigenous, and diasporic peoples. It interrogates the modern and ancient connections between world communities and examines the impact of globalization, militarism, and surveillance on society and their intersections with contemporary pop culture. She is the coeditor of Mixed Company, a collection of short fiction and visual narratives by women of color. Her curatorial endeavors include Khalid Abdel Rahman’s ” A Disappearance” and Republica: Temple of Color and Sound, an aesthetic reimagining of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast as free unincorporated territory within the borders of the United States . Her writing in various genres has appeared in the Xavier Review, Internazionale, Guernica, The Baffler, The Nation and among other outlets.
