Neil Hilborn is a College National Poetry Slam champion and 2011 graduate with honors from Macalester College. In 2013 his poem "OCD" went viral with attention from the Huffington Post, Upworthy, NPR, and Gawker, garnering over ten million views to date, making it the most-viewed slam poem ever. He has performed in 37 states and 4 countries, and he is the author of Our Numbered Days, out now on Button Poetry Press. Originally from Houston, Texas, he now lives in St Paul, Minnesota.

Betsy Clark is a poet from Columbus, Ohio. They co-organize an annual event in the community to showcase women artists called Women Aloud.

If you’ve seen David Mayfield of Kent, Ohio perform with The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Jessica Lea Mayfield, or at Bonnaroo, you’ve caught the charisma, the heart, and the comedy, and it's likely you’ll come back for more. This singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer grew up playing bass and touring with his family’s bluegrass band. As a teenager he established himself as a hot picker collecting national awards for his dexterity on guitar and mandolin. His knack for colorful performances was evident as a backing player in his sister Jessica Lea Mayfield’s band including their appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” He oozed personality on stage - a trait that makes him a natural frontman. He took his skills and personality when he joined the bluegrass outfit Cadillac Sky, playing sold out shows with British folk revivalists Mumford and Sons. Around then Mayfield began writing songs after hearing artists like Randy Newman and Simon & Garfunkel. Encouraged by his sister Jessica, & friend Seth Avett, to record his original material, Mayfield did just that, to much acclaim. Since that time he has toured almost non-stop. Conscious of not just being a musician, but an entertainer - something his father instilled in him in the family band - he certainly makes an impression live. But it’s the strength of his songwriting and musicianship, combined with that charm and personality that keep audiences consistently lining up to join the parade.

Bryant T Dill of West Mansfield, Ohio is the owner and editor of Some Weird Sin Literary Magazine. He has previously hosted and performed at shows at Sweet Aromas Coffee and the Holland Theatre in Bellefontaine and Firehouse Pizza in Zanesfield. In 2012, he was a featured poet at the Columbus Arts Festival. He also featured at the Columbus Poetry Festival in 2013. Bryant currently works in pediatric mental and behavioral health.
