We are very, very, very pleased to announce that Melissa Severin will be joining the Switchback Books Editorial Roster in the capacity of Managing Editor. Melissa originally signed on as a Contest Editor; but, we liked her so much that we decided to keep her around on a more permanent basis. About Melissa: Melissa Severin lives in Chicago and works in search engine marketing. She earned her MFA in Poetry from New England College, and her poems have appeared in MoonLit, The Alembic, and The Cultural Society. For the curious, she doesn't have a "dream job." Melissa realized at a young age that her dreams do not involve jobs, but she might like to open a bar in the Pacific Northwest. Brute Fact, her forthcoming chapbook, will be out in February from dancing girl press. Click here to read some of Melissa's poems.
