Conifers is entirely edited, formatted, proofread, publicized, designed and
maintained by Pine Manor College undergraduate students.
The Editorial Board includes:
Bethany Zaiatz is an English major in her junior
year at Pine Manor College. She is the last remaining staffer of the
original, paper-bound Conifers from the Spring 2006 semester, and is
very proud and excited to see the journal reincarnated in its brand new,
national, online format. She has also spent the last three years working as
an editing intern for Éire/Ireland, an internationally recognized
interdisciplinary journal of Irish studies, under the guidance of co-editor
Vera Kreilkamp. She hopes to one day work in the publishing industry as an
editor of fiction. Should this not work out, however, her fall back plans
include the fields of community theater and world domination.
Camille Sabree is a first year Pine Manor
College student majoring in graphic design. She enjoys drawing and writing
poetry during her free time. She grew up and still currently lives in
Roxbury, MA. Just recently, she joined the chronically-losing lacrosse team.
Lindsey Berndt is a first year student at Pine
Manor College. She is from California. She spends the majority of her time
napping. She constantly believes that it will snow and asks her roommate "do
you think we will have a snow day?" She has an amazing sock collection,
which includes socks with dinosaurs, polka dots and Tinkerbell.
Mabel Rodriguez is a sophomore at Pine Manor
College who is a biology and nursing major. She spends most of her days
solving the New York Times and Metro sudoku puzzles. Other
than solving sudoku puzzles, she also spends time writing essays. She seems
to write more essays than the English majors. If she is not writing and not
solving puzzles, she is most likely visiting the perezhilton.com website to
catch up on Hollywood news. She also takes great pride in her collection of
Hello Kitty memorabilia.
Sharon Ward is a first year student at Pine
Manor College. She is planning to major in psychology. Sharon is preoccupied
with making mix cds from her itunes library. In her spare time, she composes
music on her keyboard. Currently, she is composing a rap/techno version of
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."
