Peter Danielson Murphy's self-published novella Overburden follows three young radicals in their battle against a corrupt oil company's Midwest mining operation. Creepy sci-fi elements help connect the dots between climate violence, state violence, and economic violence. http://www.redearthpress.org/products/

 

Sean Williamson has lived in Alaska, Colombia, Los Angeles and has directed twelve films (music videos, documentary, drama). His directing/writing feature debut, Heavy Hands, was an official selection to the 2013 Raindance Film Festival (London). He started the blog World Wide Dirt (www.worldwidedirt.com) in 2008, where he has written poetry, fiction, reviews, burgers stories, and many things in between.

 

Freesia McKee is a working poet. Her words have appeared in the Huffington Post, Gertrude, Painted Bride Quarterly, Burdock, and Sundress Press's Political Punch anthology. She has work forthcoming in Lavender Review, Cleaver, VIDA: Reports from the Field and other venues. She co-hosts The Subtle Forces, a weekly morning show on Riverwest Radio.
