Eliana Herman is a 24 year-old living in Chicago, working (remotely) on the helpline at the Alzheimer’s Association, and trying to squeeze in whatever time she can to write. She graduated from the University of Michigan in 2018 with a degree in Anthropology and two minors; in Creative Writing and in Environmental Studies. Ever since she graduated she’s been working to create a writing community similar to what she found in her undergrad writing workshops. Luckily, she’s found two friends who want to exchange work and feedback every month. Almost all of her writing has been unpublished so far, with the notable exception of the opinion column about Environmentalism she wrote during the first semester of her freshman year. In her spare time she reads novels on the beach until it gets too cold, and does yoga. She writes to better understand other people and herself. She writes to give language to feelings that are hard to capture, with the hopes a reader might have needed that language for their own twisted heart.
