Her work has been recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and is published or forthcoming in orangepeel, Idle Ink, Healthline, and Querencia Press.

Her work is published or forthcoming in Block Party Magazine, Polyphony Lit, and All Existing Magazine, among others; it’s been recognized by the Sister Cities International, the New York Times Learning Network, and the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. When she’s not reading, writing, or volunteering at her local library, she’s being crushed by a dog bigger than she is.
Sophie Chen is a high school writer based in New York City. She loves writing short fictional stories and quite recently got into poetry. Many of her works have been recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. When she’s not writing, she’s most likely learning a new instrument or taking a nap with her dog.
Michelle Li lives in TX and loves writing. She has been recognized by Scholastic Art and Writing, Poetry Nation, published in A Celebration of Poets, Quills and Keyboard, and Idle Ink. She also loves reading—she’ll read practically anything she can get her hands on, the more absurd and emotional the work, the better, and plays piano and violin. Lastly, she has an unhealthy obsession with cheese, morally grey characters, and Sylvia Plath.
