The Editors

Cailey Johanna Thiessen

Cailey Johanna (she/her) has been obsessed with words for as long as she can remember. She currently works in academic translation, but has worked with words in many different capacities. Currently, Cailey lives in southern California with her engineer husband, french bulldog Earl, and not enough house plants. Her work has been published in 8 Poems, Hispanecdotes, Willard & Maple, and more.


Kiera S. Baron


Kiera Baron (she/her) is a freelance writer and editor, as well as a budding digital artist. She loves the nitty gritty of editing—a misplaced comma here, a misspelled name there. Poetry is her language of choice, but she dreams to have a few nonfiction books under her belt some day. She has a soft spot for sharp things (like cats and cacti) and always finds herself drawn to the moon.

When she's not creating monsters, she's battling them in video games. Her work has appeared in Ape-X, Catan Stories: Legend of the Sea Robbers, Youth-for-Youth: Mental Health Guidebook, NextShark, and more.
