Sueyeun Juliette Lee & Tracey McTague


Sueyeun Juliette Lee grew up three miles from the CIA and currently lives in Philadelphia, PA where she edits her small chapbook series, Corollary Press, and is pursuing her PhD in English from Temple University. Previously, she received her MFA in poetry and certificate in Advanced Feminist Studies from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Her poetry has appeared in journals such as Chain, 26, The Columbia Poetry Review, Effing, and MiPOesias’s Asian American collection. Her chapbooks include Trespass Slightly In (online with Coconut), Perfect Villagers (Octopus Books) and Mental Commitment Robots (Yo Yo Labs). As an editor, Sueyeun specifically seeks out authors whose aesthetics challenge the boundaries of intelligibility for suitably “raced” work, such as painter and African-American poet Christopher Stackhouse’s lyric meditations on the visual line in Slip (Corollary 2006) or Indian emigre Bhanu Kapil’s hybrid memoir of displacement, colonialism, and mental illness in Water Damage (Corollary 2007). Her book of poetry, That Gorgeous Feeling (Coconut), explores East/West discursive circulations through the notion of celebrity. 

Tracey McTague lives at the geographic apex of Brooklyn on Battle Hill where she curates a reading series of the same name. She is also co-editor and consiglieri of Lungfull! Magazine. She is a writer and visual artist whose work includes a number of chapbooks. A longer book, about urban dog mind, will be published this fall by Overlook Press. Tracey is currently at work on a project called SUPER NATURAL. She vandalizes private property on a regular basis.
