Williams Brittany R
Brittany Renee Williams breathes fiction and writing keeps her sane. So much so that she
graduated from Texas A&M University with her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature.
After college, she survived being a paralegal and wrote more legal documents than any
sane person should. Now she stays at home with four beautiful children and of course,
writes. She has been published in the Campbell County Observer, Sprout Online
Magazine, and the Wyoming Writer's Newsletter. She placed third in Wyoming Writer's
Contest for Flash Fiction.
Although Angel Zapata currently lives in Georgia, he was raised on the streets of New
York City and uses the grit still clinging to his shoes to chalk up fiction and poetry. He is
the recipient of the 2012 Mariner Award for Bewildering Stories’ most outstanding flash
fiction work of the year, “Carrion Folk,” and a winner of MicroHorror’s 2013 CJ
Henderson Memorial Award for his horrific tale, “Eye Appeal.” He’s authored the poetry
chapbooks, “An Offering of Ink and Feathers,” and “Prayers from Crooked Spines.”
