Abe Berglas is in their second year of an English and Statistics double major, meaning they can always be found writing essays or integrals. There is no in-between.
Maeve Reilly is a student of McGill’s Cultural Studies and Sociology departments, as well as the walking trails of Mont Royal. The subjects she is overly-qualified to teach are, Beauty over Warmth? — Montrealers’ (re)structuring of winter priorities, List-making for the Nervous and Forgetful, and Society and the “Ship Edit:” a close reading of a modern medium.
The Mcsway Team
Lucía Linaje-Ferrel is a U4 English and Communications student. She is always willing to chat at length about linguistics, animated fantasy shows, and why RM's mixtape mono is a lyrical masterpiece. She is a co-founder and editor of Mcsway's poetry journal, Snaps.
Lucy Kaskie is a second year studying Economics and East Asian Studies. When not practicing her Chinese, she can be found journaling or reading (predominately in English).
Sam Lapenna (she/her) is a graduate student at McGill in Occupational Therapy, where she hopes to one day implement animals as therapy tools in a healthcare setting. She is also an animal biologist and an extrovert who surrounds herself with friends of all sizes and species. Her best friend, a maltese named Angel, is both her trusty companion and source of inspiration.
