About the Readers

Mads Alzamora is a junior Chemistry and Sustainability in the honors college at ASU. The first thing she remembers writing was a poem in the first grade that won second place in her hometown writing competition, and she hopes she's improved since then. In her limited spare time, Mads is an actress-producer-techie for the Theatre and Shakespeare Club as well as a research assistant studying pollutants in fog samples and an avid Neil Gaiman fan. She would like to thank her friends Lucas, Naomi, and Noah for all of their help and support and her mom, who is always her first reader and made sure she saw the magic in life.

Amy Keegan thrives on serendipity and is a subscriber to felicity. In an amorous relationship with words, she seeks to make the most of life, sharing relatable human experiences and whimsical imagery through storytelling.

My name is Emilie Lu and my name in Mandarin is Lu LingYun. It means “ wispy clouds on the mountain summit”. I hope to go to medical school once i finish my undergraduate degree in Medical Studies. Growing up, I raised crickets and they were my very first pets that taught me the duality and fragility of life.
