AT SKYLIGHT: Exposition Review Vol. VII. "Flux" Launch Reading

Join Exposition Review as we celebrate our latest issue, Vol. VII: "Flux" with readings from our contributors!

Exposition Review is an independent, multi-genre literary journal that publishes narratives by new, emerging, and established writers in the genres of fiction, flash fiction, nonfiction, poetry, scripts for stage & screen, experimental narratives, visual art, comics, and film.

Exposition Review is also dedicated to creating opportunities for writers and artists to share their voices through our annual issue, Flash 405 contests, and #ExpoPresents events, which include staged readings, panels, and our signature micro-workshops in locations throughout Southern California (and beyond). We develop new projects and events to benefit the Los Angeles literary community and also publish the podcast Transposition and the Expo Blog.


Lynda V. E. Crawford has lived in the U.S. longer than her childhood home Barbados. Both homes sway and punctuate her writing. She writes poetry vignettes to sneak behind eyes, blow through ears, stretch voices like others dance words. She's been a journalist, copywriter, website manager, and email marketer. Poetry won’t let go. Her work has appeared in online literary journals including The Galway Review and The Bookends Review, in anthologies including Los Angeles Poets for Justice: A Document for the People, and at Moonstone Arts Center’s International Women’s Day 2022.

Jodi Scott Elliott is an MFA candidate in Louisiana State University’s creative writing program, and her nonfiction essays will appear in Exposition Review and Glassworks this spring. She also recently received the university's David Madden MFA Award for Fiction for the academic year of 21–22. In her final year of the program, she will be working on a collection of essays about the unique community of canine search and rescue.

Zachary C. Guerra is a poet and playwright living in Detroit, Michigan. Recently, he completed The Literal Challenge's 28 Plays Later. His play Two for 19 will premiere at The Highland Blush Theatre in Alma, Michigan, this June. He is preoccupied with pink nostalgia, the romantic apocalypse, and the end of the end of history. He has a theater degree from Central Michigan University.

Since graduating from Syracuse University in May of 2014, Nate Hapke has written, directed, and/or produced sixteen short films and his debut feature film Two Dash One One. His film work has received more than 20 awards, and his work in television has made him a three-time Daytime Emmy winner.  Nate is currently in preproduction on his second feature film, an ensemble comedy entitled Surprise!, which shoots in July, and Good Grief, a dramedy short film fully funded by the CNY Arts grant, which shoots in the fall.

Tania Perez Osuna (she/her) is the eldest daughter of a Zapotec-Mexican family, which incidentally means she is a translator, a bootleg paralegal, and recovering unofficial therapist. She is from the southern border of Arizona and is incredibly biased about what constitutes good Mexican food. In her work she strives to capture the complexity of joy, as well as the nuanced ways she has witnessed life unfold. Her work has appeared in JMWW and is forthcoming in the 2022 Roots. Wounds. Words Anthology. You can find her giggling during tense moments or on Insta @tsamper9 and at taniaescribe.com.

Kylee Webb (she/her) is editor-in-chief of Last Resort Literary Review. She’s a member of Phi Beta Kappa and graduated summa cum laude with a major in English from ASU and a double minor in Spanish and political science. She’s primarily interested in absurdist, surrealist, and feminist works, and enjoys the films of David Lynch, Ari Aster, Luis Buñuel, and literally any feminist director. Her work has appeared in volume three of Allegory Ridge's Archipelago fiction anthology, Maudlin House, Tangled Locks Journal, On the Run, and Fatal Flaw Literary Magazine, and will be appearing at Drunk Monkeys.
