Presented at:

Christina Milletti's fiction has appeared in many journals and anthologies, including Chicago Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, and Best New American Voices. She teaches at the University at Buffalo. Her first book, a collection of short stories called The Religious and Other Fictions, was released by Carnegie Mellon University Press in Fall 2006.

Brian Evenson writes: "A stunning debut. In Milletti's stories, the imaginary does not begin where the real ends: the two are intertwined, each creating the other. Be careful what stories you invent, for they may in fact turn out to be not only true to life but truer than life."

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
