About 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 also worked as a content writer and proofreader. 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.
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.
