Poet and Poetry Editor
Irina Novikova (she/her) is an artist, graphic artist, and illustrator. She graduated from the State Academy of Slavic Cultures with a degree in art, and also has a bachelor's degree in design.
The first personal exhibition "My soul is like a wild hawk" (2002) was held in the Museum of Maxim Bagdanovich. In her works, she raises themes of ecology. In 2005 she devoted a series of works to the Chernobyl disaster, drawing on anti-war topics. The first big series she drew was The Red Book, dedicated to rare and endangered species of animals and birds. She writes fairy tales and poems, and also illustrates short stories. She draws various fantastic creatures, including unicorns and animals with human faces. She especially likes the image of a woman and bird—a Siren. In 2020, she took part in Poznań Art Week.
Carly Lewis (she/her) is a visual and written storyteller residing in her hometown of Richmond, Virginia. A graduate of Hollins University's creative writing and film programs, she tries to find a meeting place in the middle of those two subjects, creating a specific atmosphere or a surreal, different world entirely in her pieces. She has a taste for artists who break the rules, and has even written about them in Spindle Magazine, LARB's Publishing Workshop journal, PubLab, and as a contributor to the Write or Die Tribe writer's collective. Connect with her on Instagram and Twitter at @carlyisclary.
