Stefani Farris' fiction appears in ZYZZYVA, Third Coast, Passages North, Iron Horse Literary Review, Crab Creek Review, Marlboro Review, and Connotations. She has been a resident at the Ucross Foundation and the Island Institute in Sitka, Alaska. She lives in Wyoming with her husband and young son, and is currently at work on a novel.


Paul Wasserman is a veteran of the Iraq War, where he served as a sergeant in an Army aircrew. He has published two volumes of poetry based on his time overseas, Say Again All and Minaret and First Poem, and is at work on a war novel. He lives in Brooklyn.


Epiphany is committed to publishing literary work in which form is as valued as content. They look for writing, wherever it may fall on the spectrum from experimental to traditional, that is thoroughly realized not only in its vision but also in its commitment to artistry. They are especially open to writers whose explorations of new territory may not yet have found validation elsewhere.
