Amelia Black

design curator

My three biggest hobbies are reading, writing, and drawing, and it's left me with a love of all kinds of art. I love writing my own stories because I can give life to someone who doesn't even exist. I can be found wasting time on the internet or appreciating good literature and music.

Caleb Leon

I wasn't really a writer but when I started taking creative writing classes, my creativity in writing has gotten a lot better. also for poems, any kind of poems I have gotten better on how to write poems.

Hi, for me writing is sort of a way to tell the story's I want to tell, but don't have the words to speak them. Its also a way for me to challenge myself to use words that I wouldn't normally use. Plus, nobody really expects someone who likes to write to have dyslexia so that's always an interesting surprise when I tell people that.

India Webster

poetry staff

My safe haven is built strictly around writing, I put all of myself into my works whether it be fiction or nonfiction it will always contain a small bit of my truth. Like a signature if you will. I have not enjoyed writing my whole life, when I was younger I saw it as nothing more than a waste of time. My mother though saw potential within what she would like to call it "chicken scratch." Whenever I felt it became too hard or too much of a nuisance she made me push through it and till this day I am thankful she made me sit at the table on all those late nights. 

Kaela Curtis

design curator

I am a freelance artist who has been writing, drawing, and doing photography as hobbies for several years. I love making art with a semi-realistic style, and emphasis on anatomy and musculature, often ending up drawing based on fantasy settings. My love for expressive dialogue and complex, sympathetic characters is what shines through in my writing style.

Logan Boshoff

fiction staff

As a casual writer, I write a lot in my free time. I am a fiction main writer, using spontaneous thoughts to propel myself in to inspiration. Though many of my longer pieces are mostly unfinished, I still spend a lot of my time working on and thinking about them, that of which takes up many of my thoughts regardless of current responsibility.

Nifemi Kalejaiye

I am a sophomore student-athlete with a burning passion for writing and story telling. Although, poetry is first nature to me, I also enjoy writing short stories that tell a longer story. Both literature and art are two methods of expression that I enjoy creating in my free time.

I'm a sophomore, and I've been writing since 8th grade. It started because of a project I didn't want to do and just snowballed from there. Now its my favorite form of expression.
