The Writers

Amy Alfredson, Editor

Hi! I’m Amy Alfredson, a first year M.A. student studying English. My goals are to write and become an English teacher in order to foster a love of reading and writing in future generations. As someone greatly invested in the history and progress of literature, the forward movement of gender and sexuality issues is something I am deeply interested in. When I’m not reading or writing, I can be found playing for the Vandal Marching Band or sewing to prep for my next Comicon.

I am a senior at the University of Idaho studying Finance and minoring in Professional Writing. Writing and feminism have always been huge passions of mine, so I am excited to combine them and be able to share my thoughts. When I am not in class, I can be found napping with my cat, reading, or Netflixing.

Hi, I’m Kailen Skewis! I’m a third-year English major with an emphasis in Creative Writing. I’m from Post Falls, Idaho. I like hiking, wakesurfing, traveling, being an equal rights activist, and of course, reading and writing. I love to write fiction and poetry, but I am excited to tap into my passionate, researching, blog writer side this semester! As I’m getting into my last couple semesters at the U of I, I’m trying harder to get more and more of my work published and decide what I want to do after I graduate.

My name is Samantha Baugh, I am a senior at the U of I seeking an English Literature degree. I want to further my education and intend on focusing on gender and women’s literature in graduate school. I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to write about feminism and feminist issues while also building a focus on inclusion and developing my skills as a writer. When I’m not doing homework, I enjoy candle making, cooking, and, during the warmer months, being on the water.
