Hazel Jeffs – Development Staff
Hazel is a soon-to-be English graduate and token Brit who loves writing, reading, analysing, theorising, fan-vidding… basically anything to do with stories. She still can’t believe her luck that she got to work on MisselArch and was ecstatic to be asked back to unravel the mysteries of Cloisterham. When she isn’t staring absently into the middle-distance, embarking on ambitious craft projects or teaching silly games to small children, you can find her fangirling hard over literary adaptations and historical fiction of all kinds over on her Tumblr and Twitter.
Mac Reid – Staff Writer
Mac is a freelance artist and enjoyer of coffee presently located in Portland, OR. Her favorite things to write about are medical emergencies, homoerotic subtext of the female variety, Chekhovian domesticity, and robots. You can find her embarrassingly large collection of photographs featuring hot babes on Tumblr.
CJ Hoke – Staff Writer
CJ is a writer living and working in Los Angeles. Storyteller, script coordinator, and steam car repairwoman, you may recognize her work from The Misselthwaite Archives or from the commas she’s snuck into your favorite ABC soap opera. She studied detective fiction in college and is thrilled to help adapt one of her favorite unsolved mysteries for the web. You can follow her on Twitter.
Shelby Stillwell – Staff Writer
Shelby is a writer, traveler, and self-professed “lifelong student” with an unshakable idealist-youngster-hipster belief in the power of stories to save the world (or at least change the culture). She has a bachelor’s degree in International Studies from the University of Oklahoma and an eclectic expertise set accumulated through years of fangirling, backpacking, and consuming entirely too much coffee. She is the writer of the web series The Writing Majors and Horizons and co-founder of Betwixt Productions, and you can find her sporadic travel content and life musings on YouTube or Instagram.
Stacey Hendricks – Transmedia Staff

Anya Steiner – Transmedia Staff
Anya is a writer who is always waiting for a thunderstorm. She created the web series Northbound and the podcast CreativiTEA Time, and will be highly offended if you’ve never heard of these things.

Follow her on Tumblr and Twitter so she can bask in external validation.

Danny Rivkin – Transmedia Staff
Danny is finishing up her master’s degree; also known as her excuse to do another thesis project on webseries and transmedia storytelling. She works for Betwixt Productions, has really random hobbies, and can’t figure out what else she should put in a short bio about herself. So instead you can check out her website or just stalk her on Twitter.
