Meet the Editors: Kammeran Hughes

 

Kammeran Hughes

Welcome to another Meet the Editor! This week is Kammeran Hughes, assistant fiction and non fiction editor. Judging by that position you can tell he is, above all else, a big reader. Here is a little bit about Hughes:

Kammeran Hughes is a junior at Lewis University, where he dual majors in
History and English with a concentration in Creative Writing. On campus, he works as a tutor at Lewis University’s Writing Center, and while off campus works at an engineering firm. He loves to read and write. His favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo, perhaps because it is as long-winded as he is. While he is not writing, he is trying to find a quiet place to read and sleep. This year he will also be taking a position for the JFR blog, so take a look at his pieces on there.
