Graham anticipates a future career in writing, law, professorship, or diplomacy—depending on who's asking.

Prose Editor - Prenesa Naidoo

Prenesa Naidoo is a popcorn fiend who is currently obsessing over Spanish translated novels and short stories. She has recently graduated with her MA in Creative Writing. She is currently turning her thesis (a collection of short stories) into a manuscript. You will always find a notebook, several pens, a half-read novel, and a moonstone tucked into her bag. Her background in Law and Psychology is reflected in her writing, often touching on politics and landscapes which stretch far beyond the mind. The spaces between pages are where she feels, heals, explores, loves, hides, dreams, and becomes. She also believes that nothing can capture a reader’s attention more than a lived experience. Her work has been published in Odd Magazine
