Haley Winans, Co-Editor

Haley loves Ellie and Adam more than fresh guacamole and her bunny sons. She is an art-hungry gardener from Annapolis, Maryland. She has published poetry in Slipstream, The Shore Poetry, Breakwater Review, Folio Literary Journal, and elsewhere. She is in the University of Memphis MFA Creative Writing program. She is a founding co-editor of Beaver Magazine, and Art Editor for the Pinch Journal. Her poems are heavily influenced by the intrinsic connections between humans and the environment; obsessed with inhabiting toxic patriarchal voices to satirize the societal systems that oppress the Earth. But sometimes she wakes up and needs to just wade in a pastoral. In her undergrad, she studied Environmental Studies and Creative Writing, with specific focuses on environmental justice, sustainable agriculture, and poetry.
