Dao Strom is the author of Grass Roof, Tin Roof (a novel), The Gentle Order of Girls and Boys (a collection of novellas), and We Were Meant To Be a Gentle People (a hybrid memoir, accompanied by an album, East/West). Her work explores hybridity through melding disparate "voices"--written, sung, visual--to contemplate the intersection of personal and collective histories. She is co-founder of She Who Has No Master(s), a collective of women writers of the Vietnamese diaspora, and De-Canon, a popup library and resource project showcasing writers of color.

Stacey Tran's first chapbook, Fake Haiku, was released by Wendy's Subway in February 2017. Her first full-length book, Soap for the Dogs, is forthcoming from Gramma (Spring 2018). She curates Tender Table, and other writing can be found in diaCRITICS, The Fanzine, Gramma, and The Volta.
