Kaitlin (KB) is a student, but she is old as hell. In her younger years she studied English and International Studies. She is ready to read some dope poetry. For example, her 8th graders love acrostic poems. Dope.

Miranda Hency is a senior majoring in English with a minor in Gender, Race, & Nation in the Women’s Studies department. She loves books, poetry, cacti, and cats, and is very excited to be a part of The Oleander Review this year.
