Last Leaves Editors

Cailey Johanna Thiessen


Cailey Johanna (she/her) is the author of Wilder, a collection of coyote poems. She currently works in academic translation, but has also played as proofreader and content writer. Currently, Cailey lives in downtown Denver with her husband and their French Bulldog Earl. In addition to her own book, you can find her work in 8 Poems, Willard and Maple, Hispanecdotes, 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.


Guest Editors

Maina Chen


Maina Chen (she/her) is a nerd masquerading as an editor and writer in some cavernous corner of Brooklyn. A half-nocturnal night dweller, she writes short stories and poems. 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.
