Ernesto Espinoza, or ERES, is a Mexican-american poet born in New York City and raised in Mexico. He and his family have three generations of emigration history between Mexico and the U.S. His roots are in Cholula, Puebla, the oldest city in the Americas with 2,900 years of history. His work encompasses mythic time, the inner voyage, and the foreign perspective. In 2011, he published ”KAYROS: the Right Time/the Critical Moment”. He’s a candidate for the Master's in Literature and Creative Writing at Casa Lamm in Mexico City.

Sam Brown is attending Smith College as an Ada Comstock Scholar, where she is concentrating in Poetry. She was editor and contributor to LaGuardia Community College's The Fiorello and The Honors Journal, and is excited to have her poetry featured in Smith College's Emulate this coming fall.
