Welcome new Designer to Masthead!


Coffin Bell is thrilled to welcome Lindsey Turner to the masthead! Lindsey is an art director, writer, and photographer in Nashville. She lives with her husband, son, and dog. She still hasn’t figured out what she wants to be when she grows up, but she’s having fun anyway.

Lindsey is joining the masthead as our designer. She is the photographer behind the cover art for Issue 1.3 and Issue 2.2 (MAGIC). She is the author who penned the CNF piece, “The Handoff,” which appears in Issue 1.3. And she is doing the book design for our upcoming print anthology Coffin Bell: One.

Like her style? Many of her dark photographs are available for sale in her Etsy shop! Partial proceeds of sales of these prints go toward funding Coffin Bell‘s operations.

Look for more of her photography and design around the web site and in future issues. Lindsey blogs every now and again at and wastes more time than is wise on Twitter: @tindseylurner.

Welcome new Short Story Editors!

Tiana Coven

Tiana Coven is a Florida native with a Bachelor’s degree in Literature from The University of South Florida. While earning her degree, she sought out to study literature which revealed how race, gender, and sexuality collide in society. She enjoys writing both science and speculative fiction, among other genres, in her spare time and never leaves the house without a book in her bag.


Stacia Rogan is an editor and writer living in Alexandria, Virginia. After leaving a career in technology, she studied editing and marketing at UC Berkeley and began pursuing more creative paths. Stacia’s short stories often involve unlikable characters and ambiguous endings that leave her readers feeling unsettled.

Coffin Bell is thrilled to have Tiana and Stacia on the masthead!
