Dustin Brookshire, Genevieve Lyons, & Greg Gimpelevich!

Dustin Brookshire is the founder and editor of Limp Wrist Magazine, which he is proud to promote as an e-zine with queer sensibility. His work has appeared in numerous online journals, including SubtleTea, ToasterMag, and Atlanta Rainbow Muse. Additionally, Dustin has won awards from two state poetry societies. Besides putting words on the page to create poems, he likes to put words on the page to create awareness of issues regarding our elected officials. He's proud that in 2007 his blog made it the floor of Georgia Senate and his call for action resulted in an invitation to the Governor's office.

Genevieve Lyons made her stage debut at the tender age of eight when she appeared in Mrs. Anderson's second grade class production of "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires." She was The Fire. She thinks the most heart-rending thing ever written might be the spider scene in "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep." Her favorite insect is the ant, and she wants to visit Antarctica.

Greg Gimpelevich is a 23-year-old, Ukrainian-born Atlanta transplant living in the bitchin' party-town known as Marietta. Having become a graduate, he does nothing relating to his degree. In light of this, he has been disowned by his parents and from the Jewish nation for not having become a doctor and/or lawyer. Although he enjoys writing "Saved By The Bell" fan-fiction in his spare time, riddled with the sort of teenage angst you may find symptomatic of a 14-year-old boy with an unquenchable thirst to see Kelly Kapauski in a two-piece string bikini, he now works as a photographer.
