Jeff Barbieri – Associate Editor (Nonfiction) is a first-year MFA student in the Creative Nonfiction program. He is a writer who extols the virtues of a healthy cynicism and a well-executed essay. His writing takes on various subjects, but tends to gravitate toward the curious collisions of the political and the personal. After receiving his BA in English from the University of Rhode Island in 2014 and trying his hand in political campaigning, technical writing, and social media, he is relieved and excited to have the opportunity to dive back into academia. In his spare time, he enjoys watching baseball, spinning vinyl, and bowling ten pin.

Hayden Moseley – Associate Editor (Fiction)/Copyeditor is a senior Fiction Writing student at Columbia College Chicago. He enjoys writing realistic fiction in the YA category, and usually covers the topics of gender and sexuality due to being trans himself. When not writing, you can usually find them singing to themselves in Japanese or talking in funny voices into a microphone.
