MEGAN FERRELL moved to Chicago from St. Louis almost four years ago, and still won't become a Cubs fan. She earned a B.A. in English from Truman State University longer ago than she'd care to think, and longs for the day when her intermittent part-time writer status gets bumped up to full-time. She penned a novel chronicling many truly heinous dating experiences. Instead of accepting these dates as random horrific events in her life, she explored the spiritual nature of a journey that led her to a diamond in the rough.
MEGAN MILKS is a Ph.D. candidate in the Program for Writers at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her work has been anthologized in Thirty Under Thirty, Wreckage of Reason: An Anthology of Contemporary Xxperimental Prose by Women Writers; and Fist of the Spider Woman: Tales of Fear and Queer Desire. She won the 2008 Goodnow Award in Prose and was a finalist in DIAGRAM's inaugural $5 Innovative Fiction Contest. Her work can be found in DIAGRAM, Mad Hatters Review, Pocket Myths: The Odyssey, Mildred Pierce, and The Wild.
