Mae McDermott is excited to serve Stillwater as Deputy Editor and a member of the Poetry Editorial Team. She is a sophomore Writing Major and English Minor. 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 essays and poems, and in addition to her work with Stillwater, she is Layout Editor of Buzzsaw Magazine and a contributing writer for Passion Project. Her work is forthcoming in the Oakland Arts Review.
