Su Hwang is a poet, activist, stargazer, and the author of Bodega, which received the 2020 Minnesota Book Award for Poetry and was a finalist for the 2021 Kate Tufts Discovery Award.  Born in Seoul, Korea, Hwang has called NYC and San Francisco home before moving to Minnesota.  Her many awards include a Jerome Hill Fellowship in Literature and an Academy of American Poets James Wright Prize.  She is currently a teaching artist with the Minnesota Prison Writing Workshop.

Robyn Katona is a 3rd year MFA graduate student at MNSU and co-managing editor with Maivboon Vang for BER. They write poetry, CNF, and when motivation strikes: writes huge world-building lore. They’re Cree and queer, and one day hope to work at an apiary despite having pollen allergies. It’ll have to wait though, after writing their thesis.
