A little about Jan Coffey... She is a
senior, majoring in English with the small hope of
publishing a novel some day. She has an unhealthy
addiction to Dobermans and a super healthy addiction to
books :) She loves to read anything from classics,
to horror, to graphic novels and plans to waste her summer
away playing World of Warcraft. For the Horde!
Ash Cook is an English
major at OSUM with a passion for all things artsy and
fartsy. Parent of two literature-loving heathens with a
zoo of animals at home, he spends whatever free time he
can find reading, writing, painting, and roleplaying on a
text-based MUD called DragonRealms, where he slays goblins
and orcs as a cat-like humanoid. Although Ash is an out
and proud member of the transgender community, he chooses
not to let his trans-ness define him. Instead, he wishes
that his acceptance and love for everyone be the
definition of his true self, and he hopes to leave his
mark on the world through these values. To know more, Ash

Fuller: Hannah considers herself a
theatrical person, in her creative pursuits and in
personality. Currently a middle childhood education major,
she's ready to take the teaching world by storm. Or at
least a well-meaning gale that encourages creativity and
expression in the classroom.

Savva Madar: What comes to mind when
someone says "built like a Greek god"? I’m just like that
but the opposite, as a friend put it: an Italian hobo. Rest
assured though I am not an Italian. I tried to join the
scouts once as a kid. Despite my affinity towards cookies
they didn’t accept me because I “wasn’t a girl”. So as you
can see my life was already headed towards disappointment.
Growing up as a kid I’ve always wanted to make video games.
So, when the other kids talked about who they wanted to be
when they grew up I wouldn’t say anything because I was
never included in the conversation. I was in the Chess club.
But, had they asked I would have probably said an astronaut,
race-car driver, astrophysicist, magician, or artist, you
know the usual kid stuff, so I wouldn’t seem even weirder
than someone who enjoyed chess club already was. But here I
am with a video game on an online publication. So who’s
Mickey Pfarr is a
graduating senior at OSUM, majoring in English and
Creative Writing. Despite her desperate attempts to fend
off the questions, her only answer to the generic, "What
will you do now?" is simply to shrug and say, "I don't
know what the hell I'm doing." Mickey loves dogs,
jellybeans, rescuing worms from sidewalks, scary movies,
fantasy novels, and excessively fluffy animals (bonus
points if they're dogs).
Maddy Roth: is a gecko
fanatic that is getting her degree in Professional
Writing. She spends much of her time working to
rehabilitate animals, cuddling her cat and listening to
her favorite Kpop groups. There is hardly a day that goes
by that she hasn’t read fanfic and there are constantly
stories flowing through her head that may never reach
paper. Her current favorite phrase is ‘That’s quitter
talk’, because she tends to try her best to see the best
