I’m back today with another very exciting post! We are adding two new staff writers to this blog! Aakanksha and Priyanuj both work with me for Levatio Literary Magazine, and I’m so looking forward to getting to share their work with you on this blog.

Aakanksha is going to help me cover the literary beat (because so many books, so little time) and Priyanuj is going to focus on mental health as well as movies and tv shows. They are both bringing great new perspectives and great new content that I know you guys are going to love!

If you are interested in joining the team, we’re still hiring! Fill out the form here.

Aakanksha

Aakanksha (she/her) is an editor and writer based in Canada. She works in the publishing industry and hopes to edit new adult & YA books someday. She is passionate about editing because she loves to support people in telling their stories. Having lived in four countries, she appreciates any opportunity to learn about people, cultures, languages, and social issues.

She will read and watch anything once but has a soft spot for animation as well as stories about neurodiversity, cultural identity, and navigating adult life. In her free time, she loves to read, sing, watch shows & movies, and spend an absurd amount of time on Tiktok.

She is a CNF/fiction editor for Levatio Literary Magazine and a prose editor for The Jupiter Review. You can keep up with her on the following platforms:
