Emma Wang is a 17-year-old writer born in Xi’an, China but currently attends Indian Springs School in Alabama. Her work has been recognized by the Scholastic Arts and Writing awards, and has appeared or is forthcoming in Cosmonauts Avenue, Canvas Literary Journal, The Harpoon Review, Blue Marble Review, The Mire, K’in Literary Journal, and more.

Eleanor Lee is a sophomore at Indian Springs. She was introduced to writing in the early fall semester of her sophomore year, and she fell in love with it since. She enjoys writing poetry and reading works by William Carlos Williams and Mary Oliver. She aims to create honest, vulnerable writing in a vernacular language. Having played the piano since she was five years old, Eleanor believes that all arts, like music and literature, needs different layers, tones, and movement. Her experience with music influences much of her writing, and she hopes to help others put themselves into their own writing and connect emotionally with their work.
