Megan is an English literature major who greatly enjoys nerding over modernist and contemporary novels. Her mind is full of random fun facts from a variety of horror movies, graphic novels, video essays, and an unholy amount of Google searches. She wears heart glasses and large earrings, both of which are an integral part of her personality.

Poetry Editor

A native of Utrecht, the Netherlands, Famke's first love was young adult novels, which is still evident by her personality. When not reading or writing novels herself, Famke can be found rock climbing, eating frozen yogurt, or stressing over her majors and minors because her biggest downfall is that she wants to study everything. She has hopes of moving somewhere where the weather stays above 70 degrees year-round after graduating.

With Tara, asking about her interests is likely to result in a long-winded answer that will include several disciplines of theatre (her major), writing (you can find her work in the 2022 issue of KCR), working outdoors, and hanging out with her fluffy, long-haired cat. She’s super excited to be a part of the KCR staff this year, but she’s even more excited to graduate this spring. But don’t ask her what her grand plans are after graduation unless you want to spark an existential crisis and get an incredibly vague answer.

Mindy Herrod

Mindy is a junior at SUU and a creative writing major. If she’s not obsessing over animation, she’s probably performing/rehearsing with the Thunderbird Marching Band or being an introvert and locking herself in her apartment (because why not?). She loves to read, write, listen to music, bake, and watch musical theatre.

Social Media Manager

Em is an English literature major and an ex-education major, ultimately due to the corruptive influences of the TV show Merlin creating an obsessive interest in Arthurian legend. Having been seriously writing since the age of thirteen, Em has written a lot and subsequently spent nearly as much time rewriting a lot. Em hopes to someday stop the rewriting cycle, learn how to write shorter sentences, and somehow become a professor along the way.

Miah Hardy

Miah is a sophomore at SUU, majoring in English education with an emphasis in creative writing. She dreams of teaching highschool and having a career in publishing - if she can ever get around to graduating. When Miah is not eating a burrito, cuddling with a stuffed animal, or wearing fruit themed sweaters, she can be found curled in her bed avidly reading anything from crappy sci-fi novels to Dostoyevsky.
