July 19th Reading: Savannah Schroll Guz, Sean Carman, Rupert Wondolowski

Savannah Schroll Guz is author of The Famous and The Anonymous (2004) and editor of the theme-based fiction anthology Consumed: Women on Excess (2005). She has been nominated for a Pushcart and a StorySouth Million Writers Award and is a monthly "Short Takes" columnist for Library Journal. Once upon a time, she worked as a correspondence translator for Bavaria's Prince von Hohenzollern and consequently wore out two very sturdy dictionaries. She now lives on a farm in the Mountain State of West Virginia and is at work on a novel.

Sean Carman has written for McSweeney's, the Comedy Central Television Network, Bookslut, and Maud Newton. He contributed to the McSweeney's anthology Created in Darkness by Troubled Americans and wrote the fake introduction to the anthology Stumbling and Raging: More Politically Inspired Fiction, edited by Stephen Elliott. Sean currently blogs for the Huffington Post and its sister political comedy site 23/6, and for the website for the literary magazine Hobart. Sean is working, very slowly, on a collection of short stories and a novel. He lives in Washington, DC, where he works as an environmental lawyer.

Rupert Wondolowski is the author of The Whispering of Ice Cubes, Humans Go Outside to Hurt You, and a few others. His work has appeared in Murdaland, Lost and Found Times, Rampike, Open 24 Hours, Fell Swoop, Rock Heals, Peek Review, and many other literary journals. He is the editor of The Shattered Wig Review and host of the erratically held Shattered Wig Nights at the glorious 14 Karat Cabaret. He occasionally gets to read his work on WYPR's treasured program "The Signal" and to pass judgment on authors far more accomplished than himself in book reviews in Baltimore's City Paper.
