Jocelyn (she/they) founded Write Through the Night in 2016 as a place for them to talk about books that they loved. After a brief hiatus to get through college, she revived the blog with the intention of transforming it into a place for people to be able to talk about culture and share their interest. Their dream is to one day make a living writing and running a publication where people can share their truth every day.
