Right now there's only one full time staff member and that's me, Morgan Maxwell. Funding, through Ko-fi and Venmo, will help change that. Stay tuned!
I'm the writer, editor, and (until I can afford to pay some folks) the voice of Dispatch from the Desert Planet. I'm an anti-oppression Black feminist out here trying to fight the good fight. Originally from my own desert planet of Tucson, AZ I used to love to travel in the beforetimes. Now I just sit on my tiny Berkeley apartment patio, feed the crows, and dream up far away worlds.
