JB is a senior at Mary Washington. He is an English major with a concentration in creative writing. He is applying to MFA Creative Writing programs for next fall with the hopes of pursuing a career in writing. His favorite word is Mamihlapinatapai, which has been determined to be the most succinct word in any language. It comes from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego, and refers to a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other would offer something that they both desire but are unwilling to do.

Anna Frybarger is a senior at UMW and is pursuing a degree in English with a concentration in creative writing.

She hopes to go into publishing after graduation or continue on to get her MFA in creative writing. Other interests include photography, reading, playing video games, playing guitar, and spending time with her brothers and sisters.
Jordan Pitt is a senior creative writing major at UMW, though he now kind of wishes he chose something slightly more practical, such as philosophy or any other major. Even though he is graduating in December, he still has not decided what he wants to do with his life, but he dreams of one day being rich enough to buy an island and/or small country. He enjoys writing both fiction and non-fiction and wishes he knew how to write a screenplay. Other interests include playing the piano and drums, watching sports, traveling, and beating his roommate at FIFA.
