River celebrating Randolph Thomas' recent two contest-winning book publications and the literary stylings of Jessica Rogers and Dylan Krieger.
Dylan Krieger is a pile of false eyelashes growing algae in south Louisiana. She lives in a little cottage with a catfish and her demons and sunlights as a trade mag editor. Her first book, Giving Godhead, is forthcoming in 2017 from Delete Press. Her other poetry projects include a collaborative satire of big-budget action movies, a collage of automatic captions from alien abduction documentaries, and (mostly recently) an irreverent reimagining of philosophical thought experiments.
After recently graduating from LSU in Creative writing, Jessica decided she would just do whats sensible and for unemployment. She then tried to get a job at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, because they have an excellent corporate structure and they... *they* give *you* the tools to be your own boss. After a month of wearing pantsuits and learning what the word 'compact' means, she now knows the value of a hard-earned dollar and if you've fallen from drinking too much tequila, Enterprise will most definitely not pick you up. You can find her short fiction piece "One, two, three" in Delta Journal 58 and other stories on her blog jessicaashleighr.wordpress.com

The Deepest Rooms, a collection of poetry and winner of the Gerald Cable Award, was published by Silverfish Review Press in 2015. He teaches at LSU.
