Proofreader

Hello! My name is Cory Davis, and I am a Creative Writing major at SUNY Adirondack. Being a part of Expressions has given me the opportunity to experience other’s creativity and hands-on knowledge in an area I’m excited to continue pursuing. Most of my free time is spent either in a book or in the kitchen trying to whip up a crazy new dessert or dish. I’m grateful Expressions has given me the opportunity to combine two of my interests, and I hope the readers enjoy the work our amazing and talented editors have done.

I love spending my free time with family, friends, and my pets. A quote I live by is  “Bad things happen to us to teach us how to look at things in a whole new light.”

Joshua

Mayer

Communications

Amid the dusky swamps and fog of Florida emerged me… I am an oddity on an odyssey. I’ve been writing since my memory was a ground floor blueprint, not only as a passion but a calling. I’m an avid reader of all walks of stories where I’ve delved into epic poems, southern gothic, philosophy, roman a clef, and especially surrealism. I love to travel to the determinant and articulate pages of James Joyce or even absurd Paris caught in the heartstrings of Ernest Hemingway. I am a first-year student and creative writing major intending to relate the fantastical around the urban campfires, the rhetoric bliss of speculation, and the evening thoughts that bring me to my ivory tower. I’m at the fullest honor to be working in this communal family where personality flourishes and where all talents can be displayed.

Kelsey Myler

Communication & Secretary 

Hi! My name is Kelsey Myler and I am a passionate creative writing major here at Adirondack. I’m an aspiring novelist who always has her nose in a book or her pen on the page. I dream of someday owning my own bookstore where every book genre has a spotlight, from the romances of Jenny Han to the classics of Dickens and Louisa May Alcott. If I’m not watching a classic sitcom with my younger brother or shooting baskets with my dad, I am probably editing magazine submissions! It has been such an honor to be part of the Expressions magazine staff. I have been introduced to unforgettable characters and walked into magical lands. I have pondered poems and thought deeply about art. I feel a kinship with each creator and hope that you enjoy this year’s magazine.

Zoe Malone

File Management, Treasurer, Secretary, & Proofreader

Hi! My name is Zoe Malone. This is my final semester before I graduate with my Associates in LIberal Arts Humanities and Social Sciences. I am planning to become a high school English teacher. I love listening to music, drawing with charcoal, reading fiction and fantasy, and writing poetry in particular.

Nancy White

Our Wonderful Teacher & Top Secret File Keeper

I've been teaching creative writing now for 40 years, and it never gets old. After working as poetry editor for a literary magazine and then an editor for a poetry press, it's a privilege to watch students crank up their courage and submit their work, then to assist the editorial staff (also, obviously, students!) discuss and share the work of their peers. This magazine (online or in print) is an amazing creation: our community  brought to life by students who, like me, are as excited to see someone else's work in print as they are to see their own.
