Katie Powers, buzz Editor

I am junior studying creative writing and political science. I started working as a buzz writer in August 2017, and after spending the last year as assistant editor I couldn’t be more excited to be serving as Editor! When i’m not at the DI you can find me writing short fiction, exploring my community and working with student writers across a variety of disciplines at the Writer’s Workshop.
