Allie McFarland, Managing Editor


Allison (Allie) McFarland is finishing her combined degree in Law and Society and English with a concentration in creative writing—both with honours. Her English thesis is a sci-fi novella about archiving—this is a new area of interest, as her usual work is literary realism with a focus on familial relationships. Her Law and Society thesis is on how Canada and the USA use each other’s legal systems to punish their own citizens across their borders. After graduating Allie intends to acquire taller bookshelves and pursue an MA in creative writing.
