Madison Barlow is a senior Integrated Marketing Communications major and Writing minor who grew up next to the ocean in Newport, Rhode Island. She’s a lively advocate of the Oxford comma and Times New Roman size 12 font. She fell in love with writing at age 10 when she described a dramatic scene of her dog eating her pizza bagels. She’s been writing ever since. Her influences include Kurt Vonnegut, Sylvia Plath, and Emma Cline. When she isn’t working as an Image-Text Editor at Stillwater, she can be found binge-watching The Office, pretending to be better at yoga than she actually is, or lip-syncing to Ariana Grande in her bathroom mirror.
