Jaclyn Lovell is a Part-Time Assistant Professor at The New School, where she received her MFA (2011). Wisconsin-born, she can still catch frogs with her bare hands and continues to smile on her subway commute from Brooklyn, her home for the last seven years. When she is not writing about the relationship between princesses and hunting, or the storing of trauma in limbs, she’s officiating weddings for close friends and family. Editor in Chief at LIT from 2009-2014, she’s thrilled to be back on the editing scene and working with the good people at Boog City!
