CHINA FAITH STAR
CHINA FAITH STAR is an auto-didactical, overly practical, visual trickster, sound/word mixer. Born in Los Angeles to Punk Flower Children and raised in a world of diverse interactions, she fled to the woods to bathe with trees. She writes poetry, occasionally. Mostly she conjures ideas, transmuting socio/political/emotional concepts into aesthetically visceral maps/translations: popping color, repetitious pattern, dimensional texture, expressionistic, meditative. Her medium-diverse visual artwork, animation, theatrical, word-smithing and musical performances have been exhibited in 25 cities nationally / internationally and her work has been added to public and private collections. She received her B.A. in Fine Art at The Evergreen State College and currently lives in Olympia, WA.
SARAH TAVIS has been a Texas punk girl, a teen mom, a graduate of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, a bookseller, a letterpress printer, and a teacher of writing: each of these fueling a different experience with the written/spoken word. Her writing comes from the place where the edges of fiction and reality overlap.
Her rich and varied background is reflected in her current work with The 3rd Thing Press, which pushes against the conventional restrictions of literary form and genre. Her work has appeared in the anthology You Look Too Young to Be a Mom: Teen Moms Speak Out on Love, Learning and Success, and several literary journals and chapbooks, including Bombay Gin, Cliterature, Mamazine, Inoculation, and Wendigo.
