Getting to know your editors

We here at IR just received the latest issue of Slab, another literary magazine. Very cute, sexy, and fun.

Along with bios, the staff of Slab asked their contributors to answer this cool 8 piece Q&A list below. I thought it would be fun to interrogate our editors with it. Thank you so very much Slab!
