Between special episodes and our poetry month features, we have 21 contributors lined up for April. Aaaah! (For comparison, in March we released 5 episodes and had 12 contributors total.) We are going to try to get their bios out to you and showcase them while not completely drowning you in author bios. Wish us luck!

As I announced back in January, all April episodes will include poetry alongside our usual short stories, and Stephanie Dickinson is going to kick us off in Episode 42, coming next week.
