Kate writes poetry, short fiction and non-fiction, and is an editor, amateur folklorist, history and horror buff (sometimes simultaneously), and aspiring pirate. Her work is published here and there, and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Her poetry pamphlet The Density of Salt was released in February 2016 from Indigo Dreams Publishing, and was longlisted for a Saboteur Award. Her tiny chapbook of historical pirate poems (with a predominantly queer and/or feminist slant), Deadly, Delicate was released in December 2016, and a second Indigo Dreams pamphlet, You’ve never seen a doomsday like it, will follow in 2017.
She founded Three Drops from a Cauldron / Three Drops Press in January 2015, and Picaroon Poetry, the journal for rogue poetry, in March 2016.
She lives in Sheffield, England, with her husband, a cat named Mimi, three teenaged/tweenaged trolls who call her “Mum”, and a baby daughter (who will call her “Mum” eventually).

Amy is a poet and a playwright, currently working towards her MA at the University of Sheffield. She lives in Sheffield with two other arty folk as housemates, which means no cleaning of any description gets done. Her work has previously appeared in Three Drops from a Cauldron’s Samhain and Midwinter Specials, as well as in Slim Volume: This Body I Live In, Slim Volume: See Into the Dark, and Prole, and online at After the Pause, Rust + Moth, and Up the Staircase Quarterly. She picked this picture because she looks a little bit like a fairy in it.
Becca is a full time teacher of little ones, part time hoarder of made-up words. She adores Netflix, hard root beer, and high fantasy. If she’s not lurking here, then she’s probably poking around her idle blog, starendpieces.com.

Even though Penny is pushing the 70 mark, she’s young at heart.
She’s been around, given birth, been a single mum, been a rebel, a kind of hippy chick.
But Penny has constantly strived for knowledge; she pursued her education out of school hours. She has O levels and A levels, she is a qualified Complimentary Therapist with well over 20 years under her belt, she is also a counsellor and healer, and she is an awesome cook! Penny is keen on taking photos and is an artist, but her passion for over 15 years is poetry, poetry poetry: words, images, the lot. She has participated in many workshops and courses to expand her knowledge of this Art and is currently in her final year of a Masters degree for Creative writing at Edge Hill University. She has had poems published in The Interpreters House and Obsessed with Pipework, and anthologies such as Beautiful Dragons.
