Chief Editor Amanda Harris is a writer living in New York. One day in high school, she discovered Raymond Carver’s short stories. She couldn’t put in words how his work made her feel, but it was something along the lines of a punch in the stomach. Amanda took fiction seriously with the hopes that she could give someone else that kind of epiphany. She also just likes to write about sex and drugs. If you would like to read more of Amanda’s work, visit Camroc Press Review, Postcard Shorts, Black-Listed Magazine, a small stone and other fine places. Just don’t be surprised if you walk away with a couple of bruises.
