Here at antonym, our editorial board is comprised of a group of individuals who bring their own unique visions to each issue. Every month, we create fresh combinations of board members to tackle the creation of antonym, according to our availability, and lend our hand with other tasks along the way. Our team members do everything from submission selection, editing, and design of issues, to running workshops, creating social media graphics, and helping to promote the magazine. It’s truly a collaborative effort. We don’t have specific job titles, but assign tasks that we’re interested in and tackle them as needed.
Maddie is a book fanatic, recent graduate, and Gilmore Girls enthusiast who aspires to work in publishing. After interning with her school’s literary magazine, she fell in love with the work of amplifying literary voices. She founded antonym not only in response to the coronavirus crisis, but because she sorely needed something productive to do. Now it’s grown far beyond her wildest imagination, and she feels very fortunate to put this together every month with friends.
