Hey! I’m Gari, and I’m a senior writer and co-editor in chief for Green Ink. I’ve been interested in the art of writing my entire life, and I am ecstatic at the opportunity to be an editor for Green Ink! I do not discriminate when it comes to writing, though I am slightly partial to screenplays. I believe that the best tools a writer can have are an open mind, a smooth pen, and a very large eraser. When I’m not writing, I like hiking, cooking, hanging out with my friends. My favorite drink is a Sheetz coffee (cheap and convenient!) My favorite book is The Knife of Never Letting Go. My favorite “classic” authors are Ernest Hemingway and Flannery O’Connor. I hope you enjoy our magazine!
I’m Katie Stoak, a senior and co-editor in chief of Green Ink. I’ve wanted to be a writer all my life and I’ve completed nearly four novels and a menagerie of short stories. I’m hoping to double major in publishing and either English or Creative Writing so that one day I can work at a publishing house while working on my own projects. Besides writing, I love to read so I’m taking Twentieth Century Literature as well as AP English. When I’m not in the English hallway at CD, I’m in the art room or working at St. Thomas Roasters which fuels my caffeine addiction.
ALEX V GOES HERE
Hey, I am Alex West, the Poetry Editor for the 2016-2017 school year. Writing has always been a major passion of mine, starting from writing little Haikus at Girl Scout camp, or song lyrics in endless journals. I spent my time in middle school working on the CDMS Newspaper and eventually I became the editor. Currently, I write for a music website, allpunkedup.com, and I write political commentary on a blog. I have completed National Novel Writing Month and over the years have written about four novels. This past year I had the honor of being published in The Live Poet Society Youth Collection. I am working on publishing more work in the near future. I also plan to pursue degrees in Political Science, Economics, and Journalism with the hopes of becoming a political correspondent and possibly running for public office. It’s a bit farfetched, but I hope to continue music reviews and possibly work for Alternative Press or other major music magazines. Outside of writing, I spend my time serving as Youth and Government President, Student Council President, Girl Scout Patrol Leader, and participating in many other activities in and out of school.
Hello, I’m Jake, the play editor for Green Ink. I started ‘writing’ stories before I learned the alphabet but now I use that skill to give something back to the school. Subjects I explore in my writing include mainly science fiction and comedy. Outside of writing, mostly plays and short stories, I am a tenor in the CD Singers and work as a teacher’s assistant at West Hanover. I enjoy computer gaming and reading in my spare time.
I’m Alana, one of the fiction editors for Green Ink. I’ve been making up stories since I was seven but I only started writing them when I was in sixth grade. I love reading and writing, and I hope to go into storyboarding and illustration. I’ve started tons of projects over the years, and I love seeing my style and skill change. I know I’m still learning, and I hope these projects will help me do that.
The piece that I submitted was one that involved very little initial planning, and most of that planning ended up going to waste. It might not have been the best idea, but it was a lot of fun to write. I find that the more I let the story write itself the easier it is.
My name is Jenny Peisner and I am a Junior and co-fiction editor for Green Ink. I have been a writer for a long time. My career bloomed when I received a piece of advice from my mother. One day, I asked her what the blank page was in the back of the book was, and she told me, “it’s for your own ideas. You can write what you want to happen at the end of the end.” Of course those weren’t her exact words, but they’re close enough. I started writing when I wrote books in 70 page notebooks. Once I filled one up, I would start another. Sometimes, I gave some to my brother to finish, but I have no idea where those went. I have only two stories left. I don’t have them finished only because the idea was too absurd for me to continue, but I continue to flourish with better ideas and better technique. When I write, I prefer science fiction, but I am open to try out any strange genre of writing. Like many budding authors, I hope to become a best-selling author when I publish my books. I am a Wattpader and I write 50,000 words every year for Nanowrimo.
Hello I’m Ryder Putnum, the non-fiction editor for Green Ink. I grew up always writing little things, short stories that didn’t amount to much. As I got older I took care to add more detail to my works. I am currently working on a novel I am calling The Shadows; that title is not final. I plan to take into the field of creative writing in college. I hope to one day be a published writer of at least two books. My writing style is mainly dark but also can be humorous and even satirical at times.
