Mira Sydow

Mira Sydow

Web Editor

Hi I am Mira. I love reading and talking about my favorite books so much. Some of my favorite book series are The Mortal Instruments, The Hunger Games, and of course, Harry Potter. Other than reading, I love to study urban studies. I am a total urban studies geek. And I also go to Pottruck sometimes. Friend me at mirasydow.me.

Anushka Agarwal

Anushka Agarwal

Audio Editor

Anushka is a senior who crawled away from the depths of the engineering quad to Van Pelt, a now questionable decision. She finds herself writing real sentences instead of lines of codes and dealing with problems sets with real people instead of numbers. In this New World, she’s found love for playlist perfecting, jamming, exercising, happy hour hopping, and over-analyzing. 

Sof Sears

Sof is a senior majoring in English and Gender & Sexuality Studies. They’re the only person from Los Angeles who still doesn’t know how to drive. They love Shirley Jackson, curating elaborate and chaotic playlists, making shallot pasta, Phoebe Bridgers, and their belligerent cockapoo. They’re the EIC of Hot Knife Magazine and Editorial Head of Quake. Their writing has also been featured in the LA Times, Diagram, the Sonora Review, and many others. They regularly publish essays on queer stuff on heartmouth.substack.com

Delaney Parks

Delaney Parks

Director of Outreach

Delaney is a junior in the College studying a variety of vaguely impractical disciplines — she’s an English major and a Classics minor. She manages 46 wonderful freshmen reporters in her role as assignments editor at The Daily Pennsylvanian and is thrilled to have the chance to get a little more creative (and unhinged) through the magic of live-tweeting, Gossip Girl, and Karl Marx. Her greatest joys in life include Trader Joe’s, drinks of the week at WilCaf, analyzing Taylor Swift and Phoebe Bridgers lyrics, seasonal baking, and homemade mac and cheese. Everything she has written for this journal was written between the hours of 12 a.m. and 7 a.m.

Helen Wu

Helen Wu

Art Director

Helen is a senior in the college studying health and societies and creative writing. She hails from Shanghai, China, and Johannesburg, South Africa. She previously served as the managing editor of Penn Appétit and editor-in-chief of the Penn Healthcare Review. When Helen is not SABS-ing on Locust Walk and cool cafes in the city, she enjoys running, journaling, cooking Asian food, and taking exorbitantly long walks.
