Lance Terwiliger

Hello, I'm Lance Terwilliger! I'm an English major with a concentration in creative writing hoping to go into editing, publishing, and writing once I graduate. I love reading nearly everything from the grotesque to the comically absurd.


Robin Pafford

Hi! I'm Robin Pafford, and I'm an English major with a concentration in Creative Writing and a minor in Spanish. I plan on working in editing and publishing after graduating from Tech in the Spring of 2025. In my free time, you'll find me reading fantasy novels, watching Friends, or listening to Taylor Swift! 


Savannah Bobo

I'm Savannah Bobo, a senior that can't go a day without writing or, at the very least, drawing, and this year, I am looking for opportunity in every walk I take. Ultimately, I aim to be a full-time fantasy and sci-fi writer, but, until then, I am exploring the world of publishing and editing and enjoying the work I do with the people I meet!


Scott Moss

Scott Moss is a double major in History and English. When not reading or writing his interests are cooking, woodworking, and 1970s music. His wife and four large dogs appreciate the cooking, the music not so much! 


Trinity Cogan

My name is Trinity Cogan and I am an English major with a concentration in creative writing. I am working towards becoming an editor! Despite how fast I finish books, my to-read list gets longer by the day. I love fantasy novels and queer romances, in addition to enemies to lovers.
