Julia Camp is a writer from Houston, Texas, who enjoys writing both fiction and nonfiction.

Scott Fitzgerald, Richard Flanagan, and Louise Erdrich.
Karina Duran is a writer from San Antonio, TX. She spent many childhood summers visiting her grandfather’s farm in rural Mexico, and captivated by a world so different from her own, she began to write stories about the lives of people within the village. Today, Karina enjoys walking and discovering new podcasts. She is especially interested in how literature can be used for opening and sustaining a dialogue between different cultures. Kevin Kling, Lyndsey Addario, and Ira Glass are a few writers who inspire her.
Brian Holmes is a writer from McAllen, Texas who explores the expression of contemporary thought and loss across cultures, through various genres and literary-periods. In his spare time, he plays the piano, swims competitively, and studies foreign languages. He aspires to be a scholar in Slavic Studies, and so draws inspiration not only from contemporary writers like Celeste Ng and Jeannette Walls, but also Alexander Pushkin and Ivan Turgenev.
Miranda Moyle was raised in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and currently lives in San Antonio, TX. She has worked as an editorial assistant for The Expositor, a journal of undergraduate research in the humanities department, and has published selected pieces of poetry. She is interested in a variety of literary fields– including a range from Old English to 17th century puritan sermons to the short stories of Flannery O’Connor.
Kara Killinger is a writer from Houston, Texas, who is fascinated by the way words can make the familiar strange and the strange familiar. When she isn’t scribbling in her journal, you might find her swing dancing or checking out new podcasts. She admires a range of writers from John Darnielle to Elizabeth Bishop.
