Joanna Harkins (editor-in-chief) | Joanna is currently studying Food Studies and French at NYU. She hopes to one day be a big fancy restaurant critic/food writer/maybe the next Anna Wintour. Her interests include Elvis Costello, diners and hoarding magazines. Follow her on twitter: @web_jojo
Kellie Hogan (creative director) | Kellie Hogan is the only person who Kellie Hogan finds funny; don’t even try to make her laugh unless you’ve won a daytime Emmy. She gets most of her work done at 3 am, after spending the entire day sleeping, painting her nails, and redecorating. One day in the not-so-distant future, you will see her writing and directing films, running this li’l magazine, writing post-postmodern novellas, and walking her 4 dogs. This is her website.
Taylor Brogan (managing editor) | Taylor is studying English Lit at the University of Chicago. She writes and thinks mostly about television, movies, pop culture, the internet, and occasionally politics. She hopes to write her own tv show one day maybe and have a small army of children. Follow her on twitter @thbrogan or check out her pretentious website.
Alejandra Buitrago (staff editor) | Alejandra watches Netflix professionally and studies at James Madison University in her free time.
Gabrielle Costa (staff editor) | Gabrielle attends the University of Chicago, where she studies Character Development (for real). She hates the phrase “guilty pleasure,” but loves “chick flick.” Her dream is to tell stories about the people she isn’t and to never grow out of her 90s teen angst phase (which she entered relatively late, at the age of 18). She can be found tweeting on one of six Twitter accounts at any given time, but the one you’d probably enjoy reading is @gabriellemcosta.
Meaghan Murphy (staff editor) | Meaghan is a lady journo who rejects the concept of lady journalism. She’d like to think that Rory Gilmore was not the overwhelming influence on her career choices, so let’s go with Susan Sontag and Terry Gross. You can find her “serious” work here. If you can’t tell already, feminist rants are kind of her thing. Her other interests include planning elaborate dinner parties that she never throws and making frequent trips to West Chicago in search of the perfect taco.

Nancy Bernardo teaches graphic design at Loyola University in New Orleans, is a self- professed type nerd, and collects ephemera from the Victorian time period through the mid twentieth century. She spends as much of her time as possible making collages, buying vintage mags on ebay and looking at books about type. She loves manipulating editorial language directed at women and playing with subversive messages. decorativedebris.wordpress.com

Kaley Dickinson is a painter/mixed media artist originally from upstate New York. After coming to grips with post undergraduate life, she somehow found herself in Brooklyn where she lives with her roommate/sisterwife Shady and her cat Marlene. When she’s not making art, she’s lurking around Bushwick, drinking too many mimosas at brunch, or watching crime shows. kaleydickinson.com
