In our final Meet the Editors post this semester, we are happy to have yet another Fiction & Nonfiction Editor to introduce you to, so please welcome Eryn Stochelski.
Eryn is currently a junior majoring in English and minoring in creative and professional writing. Her conflicting loves of English and medicine confuse her on a daily basis, but she is so far handling it by reading novels during her breaks at her healthcare job. She enjoys writing, reading, swimming, blogging, and obsessing over people in white coats. Some of her favorite genres are fantasy, thriller, young adult, classics, and re-tellings. If she’s not busy trying to figure out which path to pursue, you can find her reading at a café, studying herbalism and medicine, or jogging at night.
For our second post in this series for the new semester, we have Samantha Moffett, an Assistant Fiction & Nonfiction Editor, as well as an Assistant Art & Design Editor.
Sam is a junior at Lewis University and is majoring in English and secondary education. Before coming to Lewis, she attended the College of DuPage for two years and graduated with an Associate’s Degree in general studies. In conjunction with her school work, Samantha works as a tutor at the Writing Center at Lewis. She enjoys reading, writing, drawing, watching horror movies, and riding her bike. When she isn’t buying a mountain of selections from her local Half Price Books, she can usually be found playing with her cat, drinking coffee, or reorganizing her book collection. Some of her favorite authors are Stephen King, Vladimir Nabokov, and Jack Kerouac. Her top three favorite books — at the current moment — are Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, IT by Stephen King, and Coronado by Dennis Lehane.
It’s the beginning of a new semester, which means we have a handful of new editors here over at Jet Fuel Review. We’ve decided to switch the schedule around and place the Meet the Editors posts on Mondays, which will occur over the course of the next few weeks until we’ve introduced you to each of our new editors. First up is Assistant Fiction & Nonfiction Editor, Stephanie Karas.
Stephanie is a psychology and creative writing major. She enjoys writing, performing poetry, and reading. Her favorite genre to read is teen fiction and fantasy. Stephanie also loves the Harry Potter series, and her favorite author is Ellen Hopkins. After graduation, she hopes to become a therapist and a successful author.
Welcome to our final “Meet the Editors” post for this semester, and happy Friday the 13th! This week’s highlighted editor is Christian Mietus, who is a new film blogger for us.
Christian is a freshman at Lewis University who is currently an undecided major, but he is leaning toward English and film. His main priority is to develop himself as an individual and film connoisseur. He spends his time appreciating and dissecting cinema. Some of his favorite directors are Andrei Tarkovsky, John Cassavettes, Ingmar Bergman, Kenji Mitzoguchi, Bela Tar, Carl Th. Dreyer, Wim Wenders, Andrzej Wajda, and Yasujiro Ozu. He also appreciates different art forms, such as music and literature. Christian hopes to expand his skills as a writer and to encourage others to do so as well. He writes about film for the JFR blog, so check out Christian’s Cinematic Syntax.
It’s Friday, and with that of course comes another installment in our “Meet the Editors” series. This week’s highlighted editor is Zach Meredith, who is stepping in as our new Art and Design Editor.
Zach is a senior studying graphic design with a minor in marketing. In his spare time, he designs, listens to music, and plays basketball, but art and fashion are his true passions. Zach has been designing clothing since high school and has been running a clothing brand for almost two years. He plans to run his own fashion label on a larger scale in the future.
The end of the week is approaching and, to celebrate, we’re ready to introduce yet another of our brand new editors here at the Jet Fuel Review. This week we have Gabby Muir, one of our Assistant Poetry, Fiction/Nonfiction, and Copy Editors.
Gabby is a junior at Lewis University majoring in English Language Arts and Secondary Education. She attended Augustana College for two years before transferring to Lewis. Gabby has had a love of literature from the moment her tiny baby neck could support her baby head well enough to look at words on a page. In particular, Gabby is a huge fan of poetry, collecting the works of poets such as Sylvia Plath, Saul Williams, Allen Ginsberg, and Edgar Allan Poe. Her favorite book of all time is A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. When she is not being crushed by a mountain of homework, Gabby spends her time working at Barnes and Noble, playing video games, attempting to make her cats like her, and sleeping. Gabby hopes to become a high school English Literature teacher and spread her love of the written word to her students.
Friday’s here, and so is another Meet the Editors post! This one focuses on Assistant Poetry and Fiction/Nonfiction Editor Noah Slowik, who also recently began blogging for us!
Noah is a junior studying English Language Arts and Secondary Education at Lewis University, with a minor in Theology. On campus, he works as a tutor in the Writing Center and as a reporter for The Flyer. He is entering his third year coaching high school boys’ volleyball at Breaker Volleyball Club and also works seasonally at Dunkin’ Donuts. He enjoys reading the science fiction novels and short stories of H.G. Wells, Kurt Vonnegut, Octavia Butler, and Ted Chiang, among others. Inspired by the imaginative tales of these authors, he has also started writing science fiction stories of his own. In his free time, Noah explores bands emerging from the indie music scene in Chicago, such as Twin Peaks, The Walters, and Whitney.
