Bio

I graduated with a Master’s in English Literature from the University of Oxford and a Bachelor’s (also in English) from Washington University in St. Louis (with an additional minor in Creative Writing). I do not have any formal work experience, but I have been published in a creative capacity by Prada and A2B2 (associated with the band Death Grips), and I conducted close research during my degrees, applying my findings to interpretive close readings of Modernist feminist poets. I am currently looking for work, but in my spare time I talk with archival fashion collectors in Japan in order to bring rare garments to the US, submit poetry, and write/edit/design for a number of “zines.” Right now, I am putting together a very small zine made from a label maker, which I find very exciting.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

One of my favorite poets, Kay Ryan, once said that she wants to “squeeze things until they explode” in her work, no matter how big or small something might be. I fully believe in this and have adopted it as an ideology of potentiality—just like imaginative design.
