SONYA LEA’s essays and interviews have appeared in Salon, The Southern Review, Brevity, Cold Mountain Review, Tricycle, The Prentice Hall Reader, and Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and excerpts from her forthcoming memoir, Wondering Who You Are, received an Artist Trust Award. Sonya teaches writing at Hugo House, she’s leading a pilot project to teach writing to women veterans, and she recently directed her first short film, Every Beautiful Thing. She lives in Seattle.

NICOLE HAROUTUNIAN’s first story collection, Speed Dreaming, came out in March. Her work has appeared in Tin House, Two Serious Ladies, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, and elsewhere, and her story “Youse” won the Center for Fiction’s Short Story Award in 2013. Nicole is co-editor of the digital arts journal Underwater New York and writes the blog Our Books Are Better Than We Are. She works as a museum educator, holds an MFA from Sarah Lawrence, and lives with her husband in Queens, New York.

DAN GEMEINHART is the author of The Honest Truth, a debut middle-grade novel that was a New York Times Editors’ Choice selection, an Indie Next List selection, and an Amazon Best Book of the Month. A teacher-librarian and the father of three daughters, he lives with his family in Washington state.

DAVID K. WHEELER’s debut poetry collection, Contingency Plans, was published by T. S. Poetry Press. His writing has appeared in The Morning News, The Gay & Lesbian Review, Glitterwolf, The James Franco Review, Codex Journal, and others. He earned his BA in creative writing from Western Washington University and is now associate editor at Shelf Awareness in Seattle.

MAN WITH GUN is an indie-folk outfit from Seattle comprising songwriter Jeff Brennan, Jarret Middleton, and David Stone. The band makes use of the country traditions of murder ballads, traveling songs, and down-on-their-luck antiheroes making the best of terrible options in life.

Bring friends, lovers, bons mots, and your appetite—the Rendezvous has a tasty bar menu and cocktails for days.
