They have served as Managing Editor of Cicada Creative Magazine and Spiritus Mundi: A Collective Memory, and have taught at the Lighthouse Writers Workshop and at the University of California at Los Angeles.

Beyond poetry, they enjoy experiencing music, food, and magic with loved ones. You can often find them musing about gender or wandering about Oxford, trying to look like a mysterious flaneur (though they're most likely giving lost puppy).

    Eleanor Harvey

    ASH Editor

     

    Eleanor is a 3rd year English student at Somerville, occasional poet, and part-time American. When she's not slogging through the sixteen and seventeen hundreds, she is a scatterbrained reader. She often ends up returning to the same poems, over and over again (currently - Auden’s ‘First Things First,’ Heaney’s ‘Postscript,’ Thom Gunn’s ‘Autobiography’). She loves poetry in all its forms (quietly putting aside her burning hatred for acrostic and concrete poems) and can’t wait to experience everything Oxford’s poets have to offer!
