You Are Not Alone

Sarah Manning was born in Los Angeles (shh) but raised in the woods of NoVa. She was inspired to write her first novel after a short stint at the NYC Dept of Education. Like all people in BoCoCa, she is fond of her bike and wears glasses.
Justin Goldman received an MFA in Creative Writing from Mills College, where he won awards for both fiction and nonfiction. He also studied at the New York State Summer Writers Institute, and his work has been published in “Dark Sky,” “Tea Party,” and “Progress Chrome.” He has a blog, fromabrooklynbasement.wordpress.com, and a novel, “Stumptown, USA,” which could use a publisher. He was born in New York, raised in San Francisco, and seems to mostly live on airplanes between the two.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Theresa Navarro wears many hats as an arts advocate, producer, performer, educator and writer. She has collaborated with arts groups and educational institutions around the country, and was honored as one of 15 Asian Pacific American Women Leaders for her work in promoting the media arts. Now based in Manhattan, Lit Crawl marks her literary debut. Follow her on twitter: @theresaxtine.
