Jeanne Polochansky, Associate Editor

Jeanne Polochansky is a fourteen-time published poet, three-time author, and a 1st-year Life Sciences student at the University of Toronto.

She balances the overwhelming domination of literature in her life by dancing, studying Nordic history, or engaging in conversation about the works of van Gogh (whom she would’ve loved to have the pleasure to meet), and is found most at peace with a book, a cup of hot cocoa, and a cat by her side.
