Professor Dunja Baus – Advising Editor

Madelaine Pries – Editor-in-Chief

               Hello readers and writers! I’m Maddy, a 4th year student in York’s English and Professional Writing program. Since beginning my studies at York three years ago, I have worked as an editorial intern and staff writer for various organizations and have picked up a few writing awards along the way.

I had the pleasure of joining Inventio in its inaugural year last year as Chief Editor of Non-Fiction. Getting to contribute to the webzine’s establishment and growth was so much fun that I thought I’d come back for another round. I am excited to be returning this year as Editor-in-Chief, and to continue contributing to the growth and impact of our literary baby. Our writers and colleagues in the York community are bursting with inspired and insightful works, and I cannot wait to have Inventio share with you.
