JOANNA KAVENNA grew up in various parts of Britain, and has also lived in the USA, France, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic States. Her first book THE ICE MUSEUM was about travelling in the remote North, among other things. Her second was a novel called INGLORIOUS, which won the Orange Award for New Writing. It was followed by a novel called THE BIRTH OF LOVE, longlisted for the Orange Prize. Her latest novel is a satire called COME TO THE EDGE. She was named as one of the Telegraph’s 20 ‘Writers under 40’ in 2010, and in 2013 was named as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists. Her story BEETLE features in The White Review No. 14.


DECLAN RYAN was born in Mayo, Ireland in 1983, and lives in north London. He has an MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway where he is currently teaching and working on a PhD on ‘perfect speech’ in the poems of Ian Hamilton. He co-edits the DAYS OF ROSES anthology series and is a poetry editor at AMBIT.


REBECCA TAMÁS is a London-born poet currently living in Norwich, where she is studying for a Ph.D. in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of East Anglia. Her pamphlet THE OPHELIA LETTERS was published by SALT in 2013, and she is currently at work on a series of poems which focus on witchcraft, female alterity and esoteric difference. She has most recently been published in BEST BRITISH POETRY 2014, and BODY. Her poems feature in The White Review No. 14.
