Alicia Franco is a proud native of northern California. Her first short story was written and illustrated at seven-years-old, and it was critically acclaimed amongst her parents and fellow second grade peers.

When she is not writing poetry she is off having adventures and exploring the unknown. She survives in the Mission District of San Francisco, the mecca of burritos and Chinese cuisine.

Yes we are multifarious word manglers, deconstructors and put-her-back-together-ers, hedonists, lovers, inventors, and geniuses -in print. In speak, we are awkward thumb and hair twisters, mismatched and clumsy, full of quiet tensions, hushed obsessions-fascinations-addictions-and- squelched-desires-to take each other to the handicapped bathroom and get it on. And so, we figured what better way to quickly and efficiently disintegrate these boundaries than to combine booze and music and get a reckless abandon of limbs, smiles, and louder-than-necessary schmoozing.
