Editorial Readers:

Allie Marini Batts is a New College of Florida alumna, meaning she can explain deconstructionism but cannot perform simple math. She is currently a dual concentration MFA candidate at Antioch University of Los Angeles, leaving all hope for mathematical comprehension utterly lost in the ether. Her work has been published in over 200 print and online publications that her parents haven’t heard of, but they pretended to be impressed when she was nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net Awards. She lives in Tallahassee, Florida, with her husband, a Black Mouth Cur named Bean, a herd of tame raccoons and opossums, and the treefrogs that somehow always manage to break into the house (she thinks it must be the sticky toes.) In addition to reading for Spry, Allie is also the business manager for Antioch University’s Lunch Ticket magazine, and reviews books for The Bookshelf Bombshells. You can find links to her work on her blog, and you can find her on FacebookGood Reads and Twitter.
