We ♥ Interns (Part II)

Hello, my name is Mary Kate DeJardin, and I will be interning with Stoneboat this spring. I grew up in the small town of Luxemburg, Wisconsin, and I have been reading and writing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for the last nine years, although poetry has always been my favorite to write and read. As a child, I filled many books with poems or story ideas that would pop into my head at any place or time. If I didn’t have my notebook with me, a random napkin would happily take its place. As years passed, my passion for writing never ceased. In fact, it grew, which led me to Lakeland College, where I am currently a senior and in the final semester of my writing major. I am very excited to work with Stoneboat and those who share my passion for writing. I look forward to gaining valuable knowledge and bettering myself as a writer.

We ♥ Interns

Hello, everyone! My name is Katie Amundsen, and I will be interning with Stoneboat for the next several months. I grew up in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where my interest in all things literary started early in my life. As a kid, I often had my nose buried in a book, and as soon as I could pick up a pen, I knew that I wanted to write in some capacity—I have about twenty childhood journals at home filled with stories, scribblings, and drawings to prove it. As I grew older this passion didn’t change much, leading me to major in both Writing and English at Lakeland College, where I am currently in my third year. I'm incredibly excited to be working alongside the editors of Stoneboat to gain knowledge and experience in a field that interests me while also celebrating the types of artists who have always influenced me to keep creating.
