MAGGIE YANG
Founder + Editor-in-Chief

Maggie loves reading and writing poetry and dreams of visiting every museum and historical site in the world. She is particularly intrigued by the intersections of creative writing with different forms of visual art. You can find her admiring the beauty in nature, whether on a sunny or rainy day, or of course competing in ultimate frisbee in Canada. She is beyond excited to launch Pluvia and hopes it can be a safe place for young voices to share their works

JOYCE HUANG
Managing Editor

Joyce has been fascinated by stories ever since she was little, and she grew up spending much of her free time reading and writing. She likes fiction in general, but her all-time favorite genre is fantasy. She loves creative writing -- from creating short stories and poems to simply describing things, she finds them all immensely enjoyable. She hopes to continue exploring the beauty of languages and storytelling throughout her high school career.
