Mae McDermott is excited to join Stillwater Magazine as a Poetry Editor. She is a freshman Writing major with minors in English and Honors. Mae has always relied on writing as a medium of indiscriminate human connection and peaceful self-expression, and she wishes to become a good custodian of this craft. Mae chiefly enjoys reading and writing poems, essays, and features. In addition to her work with Stillwater, she is a content creator for the Ithaca College Odyssey community and a contributor to Buzzsaw Magazine.
