Board of Editors



Jess Hoops, Editor-in-Chief

I’m an English/Philosophy double major who drinks a lot of black coffee and wears a lot of black clothing. I enjoy Greek mythology, putting exorbitant amounts of hot sauce on my food, pretending I live in the Anderson and Beck houses, and reading horror novels at night.




Laura Barker, Editor and Social Media Coordinator

My love for Clark Writes is only eclipsed by my love for sloths! I’m a senior English major who splits her time between writing a novel, working in student government, and being terrible at basketball. IG: barker713



Mehr Gunawardena, Editor

I’m a tropical islander that majors in English and Political Science. I am working towards being a print war correspondent and possibly a poet. Who really knows where life will take me?



Emily Denny, Editor

I am currently a senior English major with a creative writing specialization, and I’m from both Westwood, NJ and Tobyhanna, PA. I like 1950s horror films and playing the harmonica.




Kate McNicholas, Editor

I am a sophomore here at Clark and I am studying International Development and Social Change. This is my first year on the Board of Editors for Clark Writes, and I am so excited and honored to see and hear the perspectives and ideas of my fellow Clarkies. Writing has always been one of my greatest passions and I enjoy slam poetry competitions, as well as academic and creative writing. I am a strong believer that words can create world-changing actions even if, at first, they sound like a fairy tale.



Bruno Lieto, Editor

My name is Bruno Lieto, and I’m a sophomore here at Clark who’s majoring in English and then hopefully getting my master’s in education so that I can teach elementary school. I’m from East Haven, Connecticut and I write a lot of poetry and the occasional short story.
