Nick MHost Nick Morris! Nick Morris has been to so many F-bomb readings that he is the Official Unofficial Sound Guy for these events. He infrequently publishes his writing, but some of it has appeared relatively recently on the Prose podcast, and you can buy his first collection of stories Tapeworm directly from him or on Amazon. He is slowly working on a new collection of stories, mostly because he spends so much time talking about Batman under the guise of mythology as a Humanities professor at the Community College of Denver. You can hear him perforhis stories every month the Fbomb.

She founded Denver Artists for Rent Control in 2016 and that same year was named one of Westword’s “100 Colorado Creatives.” Roseanna is in love with words: Written, spoken, published or not… It’s all about words on page and energy on stage. Her fiction, essays, and poetry have appeared on the pages of many a small press publication. Featured in a range of venues including rock shows, public TV, art & poetry festivals, she has great passion for the beauty of spoken word delivered… live.
