Erika is a sophomore Writing major with a minor in Women's and Gender Studies. She penned her first short novel, a groundbreaking narrative detailing the life of a family of blueberry picking robots, when she was four years old. Besides writing, Erika enjoys learning new things, trampolines, going to concerts, plants with fuzzy leaves, riding bicycles, looking at the moon, and petting cats. She is a copyeditor for Stillwater, and her favorite genres (both to read and to write) are personal essays and experimental fiction. Her hopes for the future are to contribute to the takedown of the patriarchy, grow and maintain a small but impressive vegetable garden, and get published.
