About the Readers

Bret Crowle is a multi-genre creator who has spent the last year singing, dancing, playing pretend, and editing her forthcoming debut poetry collection for Frontenac House. Jesus is a Voyeur will be making its way to you in the fall of 2024. When not creating, she can be found looking for faces in the clouds, listening to the same albums over and over again, and participating in the deeply healing art of noisemaking. 

Mikaela Cacho is a Filipino-Canadian that loves taking part in different art forms, from singing and acting, to drawing and crafting. To them, poetry has always felt like home. In 2019, Mikaela published their debut poetry collection, I Was Always the Sun. In 2023, they started to explore zine-making by combining their poetry and visual art.  Zines as a creative medium are accessible and can build community, and Mikaela loves to partake in zine trades. You can find their poetry in zine collections, including Feels Zine (issue 21), and One Dyke to Another (issue 2). Nothing excites them more than being among artists that create just for the sake of creation, and sharing their art with everyone. 

See you there!
