Alex Elizabeth

A bit of a witch at heart, Alex Elizabeth is a poet with a curious eye for the unnoticed and peculiar. While much of her work began as a form of therapeutic catharsis stemming from battles with mental health, her content with her written words has grown into life musings, musical ekphrastic poetry, and beyond. She has performed her work in the greater Milwaukee area, as well as most recently for 6 months in Phoenix Arizona, at a weekly slam hosted by a local publishing house. You can find and read her work on her Instagram at @seealexwrite, and very *very* occasionally on her blog. Alex currently has a fantasy novel published, and with a couple of projects in the works, hopes to publish a poetry book in the near future.
Alex resides in East Town Milwaukee where she enjoys crafting the perfect brandy old-fashioned and listening to Dodie with her thirteen plants.

Katie Jozwicki


Kate is a 23-year-old from Milwaukee trying their best to live the life they never planned on keeping and uses her experiences with mental illness and various traumas as fuel for her work. She has spent the last decade attempting to break the stigma surrounding mental illness, suicidal ideation, and sexual assault, and chooses to spread her message in hopes that it can help even one person out there. Life is often a hurricane, but Kate believes that as long as you keep riding that wave, you can make it through anything. Having been a lifelong musician, Kate enjoys applying her poetry to music and is looking forward to combining the two in the future. When they are not writing, working, or spending time with their pals, they can be found curled up at home with their cat, Moscato, and Lord of the Rings (extended edition, of course) playing on the tv.

Jenny Janzer

Jenny Janzer is a resilient swamp creature that has been playing in the mud since 1989. When she was 11 she was diagnosed with a terminal heart/lung disease called Pulmonary Hypertension. Refusing to give in, she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Writing/Poetry from the University Of Milwaukee Wisconsin. While in school she started up her small press, Most Pulp! (Find them on IG: @mostpulppress)  Her writing cycles around philosophy, her crooked ways of thinking, her health, fiery emotions, dramatic word structures, nature, and the odd juxtapositions and symmetries noticed or created.

Chloe Elisabeth


Chloe (they/them) is a Milwaukee filmmaker and illustrator. They like roller skating and audiobooks and ice cream with Oreos in it.
