Welcome back to another Meet the Editors post! Today we are introducing Miguel Soto, who is working with us this semester as a Special Sections Editor.
Miguel Soto is currently a junior at Lewis University, majoring in English literature and language. He enjoys reading, binge-watching Netflix, and making music. One of the reasons he decided to major in English literature is because he enjoys reading about various experiences from various timelines.
Miguel’s favorite author (at the moment) is James Baldwin, and he enjoys exploring the genre of magical realism. If he’s not busy with work or school, then you can find Miguel planning his next tattoo.
Below is our Q&A with Miguel:
My name is Miguel Soto, and currently I’m working on the high school submissions at the Jet Fuel Review. I also sometimes dabble in the Fiction/Non-Fiction areas of the JFR.
What book might we find on your nightstand right now?
The last book I read was If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin, but other than that you can find untouched textbooks I bought for the semester on my desk.
If you had the chance to co-write with one author, who would you choose? Why?
Describe your perfect reading atmosphere.
What might your personal library look like?
If you could “re-make” a poorly written movie that was based on a book, what movie would it be?
What piece of literature can you reread over and over again?
Give us a quote from your favorite (or any) book/movie.
If you were invited to have coffee with any fictional character, who would you most like to meet? Why?
Share your top five favorite pieces of writing (anything included, be it movies, books, etc.).
Be sure to check back next Friday to meet another new editor. Have a fantastic weekend!
