    Kimberly is excited to join the Writopia Lab team as an editorial intern. After completing her freshman year at Emory University, she will continue her studies at Barnard College of Columbia University in the fall. She is thrilled to be back in New York City, where she was raised. Although Kimberly has not yet declared her major, she wants to explore English and political science during her college career. Her internship experience is diverse, including market research, real estate, and sleep medicine. In addition, she volunteered at the JCC Tutoring Program at P.S. 163, tutoring 2nd to 5th grade students in literacy and math during the school year and summer. She likes to write personal essays and hopes to publish a memoir one day. In her spare time, Kimberly enjoys spending time with her family, discovering new music, and playing basketball.

    Phoebe Cavise is looking forward to working with Writopia Lab as a summer intern. She holds a B.A. in Art History from Tufts University, where her extracurricular interests also included film, theatre, and music. Over her four years, she published a personal blog through the university’s Admissions website. She also proudly served as a Co-Artistic Director of the country’s only collegiate mime troupe, Hype!, for whom she wrote or directed over two dozen non-verbal skits, ranging from the absurd to the dramatic. Several of her short, full-length, and episodic screenplays have been fully realized into productions, and she hopes her stageplays follow suit. Previously, she has had poetry published in youth competitions, her photography recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and served as Editor-in-Chief of her high school literary magazine, Perspectives.

    Maya is so excited to be working at Writopia Lab as a part-time intern! Maya took her first Writopia workshop in eighth grade, continuing all the way until graduating high school, and she started interning at Writopia during her sophomore year. She is now on a gap year before attending the University of Chicago in the Fall of 2019, and she knew from the start that she'd want to spend this year working at Writopia. Writing is a huge part of Maya's life: at Stuyvesant High School she wrote for the school newspaper, was a peer editor at the writing center, and was a playwright for the annual student-run musical theater competition, SING!. She has received both regional and national recognition for her work through the Scholastic Art and Writing awards, the Penguin Random House Creative Writing awards, and the Worldwide Plays Festival, and she has been published in Writopia's The Ellipsis and The Parenthetical literary magazines, as well as in Surge Magazine. Maya loves to write poetry, flash fiction, and creative non-fiction, but when she's not writing, she spends her time running, reading, and learning new languages (both human and programming ones!). Maya can’t imagine what her life would be like without Writopia Lab, and she is so happy to continue being a part of this amazing community.
