Shira Schindel – Executive Editor
Shira looked up the word ‘Quarto’ and found a definition. She noticed words like printing, lithography, inch, centimeter, demy, bookbinding, and the number 4. She promptly rejected this formality – Everything is Literary! – voice boomed inside her ear (actually it was Casey on a blowhorn Who gave Casey a blowhorn?). Quarto is where I go to see my friends, Shira told no one; her definition is not up for discussion.

Jay Yencich – Editor & Scrubber
Jay can’t really draw or dance, and his penmanship is horrible, but he has been struck by lightening, once drove from the Canadian border to Seattle in an hour and twenty minutes (in the rain), and has eaten blowfish without dying, so it all evens out in the end.
