She has hosted, curated and read in venues all over Dallas. Opalina Herebia Salas is the Editor of Let It Bleed and a de-facto Oak Cliff Director for women advancing their claim to Lit Pack recognition.

Lilly Penhall enjoys a hedonistic life, having been disillusioned by a religious upbringing. She returns to her writing with a fevered passion after a seven year writer’s block called marriage. First published at the age of 8, her work reflects a vibrance and love of life, uncommonly uncomplicated by ways of a free-spirited way of living. She is involved in many open mic events in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, including Mad Swirl, Lost Art Open Mic and Poets on X+. She has been published in Dallas Morning News, Forces Literary Magazine, Let It Bleed and Mad Swirl, and has a book of poems titled “O,” published through Death List Five/Project 108 Productions. Lilly attended University of North Texas, graduating cum laude with a degree in English Composition and Rhetoric. She currently resides in Plano, Texas, and surrounding couches.(Photo: Desmene Statum)
