Tavia Stewart, Managing Editor
Because she has switched from Yerba Mate to coffee, and from homemade sandwiches to Cup-O-Noodles, Tavia is not only able to hold down the fort as Managing Editor at the Office of Letters and Light during the Script Frenzy season, she is also able to write a screenplay, plan events for Watchword Press, and run a reading series for the More Cowgirl Writers Collective. She's worked with the genius minds that make up both ZYZZYVA and McSweeney's Publishing, has recently learned how to produce a podcast, and has just had a short story picked up by SmokeLong Quarterly.
