Chelsea, Lauren, Christine, Megan and Lori

 

Chelsea Tufarolo
Chelsea is a senior English major at the University of Mary Washington with a concentration in creative writing and a minor in Museum Studies. After graduating in May 2013 she hopes to attend grad school and eventually work in a museum. You can find her poems “Jellyfish” and “Colic” in Qualia Literary & Art Journal and Unravel Literary Journal, respectively.

Lauren Olsen
Lauren is a senior at the University of Mary Washington studying English with a concentration in creative writing. She loves Agatha Christie mysteries, Hitchcock films, and ghost stories. Lauren is passionate about travel, and enjoys pieces that transport her to exotic locales. Win her heart with fine wine and a box of macarons (or chocolate covered strawberries.)

Christine LaPlaca
Christine is a senior double majoring in Creative Writing and Asian Studies at the University of Mary Washington. She will graduate in December 2012 and plans to hang around Fredericksburg for the off semester before hopefully going to graduate school for an MFA next fall. She enjoys reading, writing novels and poetry, and traveling to China. She also has an unhealthy obsession with Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium series” and anything else that startles her, presents controversy, or is mysterious. You can find her poem “I am” in Sole Literary Journal and her poems “Fragments of a Beijing Windowsill” and “Isle of Palms” in Departure Literary Journal.

Megan Honour
Megan is a senior double majoring in English: Creative Writing and Sociology at the University of Mary Washington. She is a passionate athlete, reader and traveler. After graduating, she hopes to find a job that lets her visit places all over the world. Halloween is her favorite holiday, so she’ll be happy to watch any scary movie with you. Her favorite thrillers are The Others, The Sixth Sense, and the Silence of the Lambs.

Lori Buchanan
Lori is an English major with a concentration in creative writing and a minor in Linguistics. Although she is glad to be a senior embarking on the next chapter of her life, she will be the first to admit that her future is perhaps one of the biggest mysteries this site has to offer. As a lover of the unexpected ending and anything that makes her think, Lori enjoys psychological thrillers such as Secret Window and Shutter Island (the books and the movies). She also really loves alliteration, it is her favorite literary device.
