Editor-in-Chief: Delany Burk is a four year senior who loves watching the stars, drinking coffee, and getting snuggly in cold weather. In her writing, she enjoys exploring the philosophical, scientific, and emotional side of writing. 

Junior Editor-in-Chief:  Ryan French is a hip young dude and caught up on all the “memes.”

Fiction Editor: Kalista Puhnaty is a four-year senior who sees all and knows all, and is the mother spirit of the Creative Writing department. The most recent recognition she has received is runner-up in the Faulkner-Wisdom Short Story by a High School Student competition.

Poetry Editor: Priyanka Tejiri Sebeni is a conglomerate of her Nigerian-Singaporean heritage and is a second-year sophomore at Idyllwild Arts. Her favorite aspects of writing explore human dynamics and emotions. Other than writing, she likes to spend her time dreaming with her eyes open.

Non-Fiction Editor: Cheon “Alan” Lee is a senior Creative Writing major. He co-hosts the ShutUp+LetMeTalk podcast, which is making a comeback. He also likes computers, learning about public policy, and long walks by the beach.

Dramatic Writing Editor: Although L. Yang appreciates modesty, he finds pretentious, unresearched writing to be humorous. He is open to being sent misleading political arguments, creationist manifestos, and conspiracy theories to read for his personal amusement (send these to his spam-collecting email). However, it is best that you submit plays to him, as he must fulfill his role on the Parallax team.
