Sidney Wollmuth is double-majoring in English Literature and Creative Writing. She likes to describe herself as the cross between a six-year-old and a sixty-year-old. When she's not doing her homework or losing things, she's probably endlessly scrolling through literature memes. Visit her writing portfolio at sidwollmuth.com
Lizzie Anderson is majoring in English literature and minoring in creative writing. She is from the historic town of Washington, NC, and enjoys spending time on the water with her pets. In her free time, she likes to create magical worlds, read historical novels, and obsess over jigsaw puzzles. One day she aspires to write fantasy novels and own five cats.

Jenna is a junior double majoring in English Literature and Creative Writing with a Certificate in Publishing and a minor in French.

Piper White is a senior majoring in Creative Writing, with a minor in Women & Gender studies and a certificate in Publishing. Her writing is centered in realism (but she loves a good horror piece). She spends her days writing in her upcoming short story collection, hanging out with her cat, Marnie, and being an introvert. Oh, and sometimes casting a spell or two, but she promises not to hex you.
