Katie Cotugno (kitchendoor)


Katie is a Pushcart Prize nominee whose fiction has appeared in

The Apalachee Review, Argestes, and The Broadkill Review,

among others. Her nonfiction has been featured on nerve.com.

She blogs at kitchendoor, where she offers her (many) opinions on

homemade Oreos, the Amtrak Northeast Regional, and the small

indignities of office work. In her free time, Katie likes to try

and convince her more erudite friends to read books by Nora

Roberts. She also knits, but badly. She lives in Boston, where she

is hard at work on a novel about runaways and missionaries that

might as well be titled The Albatross Around My Neck.


Rebecca A. Flanagan (becflan)



Rebecca lives in the Connecticut suburbs but works

(and couch-surfs) in Manhattan. By day she is a not-

so-mild-mannered office manager for a publisher of

niche magazines. By night she is an avowed cat lady

who really enjoys tea, The Daily Show, and staying

up way too late. Rebecca has a BFA in Writing,

Literature and Publishing and an MFA in Creative

Writing from Emerson College, where she was

Editor in Chief of The Emerson Review for two years.



Lauren Flanagan

Graphic Designer

Lauren is a freelance graphic designer with an Associate’s

Degree from Full Sail University. Like her sister Rebecca,

she is an unapologetic cat lady, though she prefers green

tea to black. In addition to designing the lovely logo at

the top of our site, Lauren has been commissioned to

create unique and intricate tattoos for many of her friends

and acquaintances. She plans to learn the tattoo trade

while continuing to do art and design work in other

media. You can see more of her work here.
