About the Editor


My name is Jen Stansfield and I’m a writer living in Los Angeles. I received my MFA from Emerson College and I am probably the last person on the planet who should be running a literary journal. Since its 2017 and we live in the Upside Down, I said fuck it and jumped in with both unqualified feet.

I like Batman, cats, coffee, and corgis. I host a comic book podcast with my husband called Worst Collection Ever where we swear a lot and discuss the terrible comic books that litter our apartment. I also run a blog called Last Ditch Effort where I write reviews/recaps of TV shows like Gilmore Girls and Gotham.

A brief list of some of the books I enjoy:

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon
Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self by Danielle Evans
Bad Behavior
by Mary Gaitskill
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
The Collected Stories of Richard Yates by Richard Yates
