Fall Staff Bios are up!

Over the past few months, we have received messages from concerned readers letting us know that the staff bios were difficult to find, or that the links to them were broken, leading to pages or posts that no longer exist. So in the interest of making things easier on everyone, a link to the staff bios has been placed in the main menu for your convenience.

Without further ado, please give a warm welcome to the Fall 2013 Forum Literary Magazine staff!

Katerina Argyres
General Editor

Katerina Argyres is currently enrolled in CCSF and SF State. When she’s not studying, working, or entertaining her dog she likes to watch old movies set in San Francisco and cook. She is currently on a detective novel spree. It is inspiring her to write short mysteries and narrate her daily activities like she is in a noir film.

Kristine Nodalo
Managing Editor

In her spare time, she likes to hole up in her room with a pizza all to herself while watching Downton Abbey. You’ll usually find her hungry and searching for more food, or with her nose in a book.

Tanya Prue
Drama Editor
Social Media Editor

Tanya Prue is an actor/writer from New Mexico with questionable sanity.  After taking several years off of school to get to know the real world and subsequently discovering it is hopelessly dull, she has returned to pursue majors in both Creative Writing and Theatre Arts.  She plans to use these degrees to finally wrangle all of the characters wandering around in her head.

Casey Baker
Fiction Editor

Casey Baker was born on a volcanic island among the sheltering branches of koa and constant threat of wild javelinas. Just as he began to form words for the tropical land around him, he was whisked into the sky in a flying metal tube and placed squarely in the center of manifest destiny and the broken dreams of aspiring starlets. He has spent much of his life trying to find volcanoes again, and through his writing he has discovered that the most magnificent ones come from within.

Amara Kellogg
Assistant Fiction Editor

Amara Kellogg is a CCSF student born and raised in SF, and an aficionado of all stories. She splits her time between finding stories she loves, writing her own, and volunteering at organizations that help struggling families.

Tyler Anderson
Poetry Editor

Tyler Livingston Anderson is a Colorado born mountain boy/man  who currently lives in a box within the confines of downtown San Francisco. His anonymity rating amongst the rest of the world’s population is quite high. He still believes in supporting the United States Post Office by buying stamps and sending mix-tapes to his friends cross-country. On days when he is not cutting up dead animals for a living, he can be found crewing for sailboats or shredding guitar like a pair of lace panties on a wedding night. Tyler is extremely good at riding his bicycle and eating profuse amounts of cheeseburgers-and wishing, mostly, he could perform both of these charitable skills in a simultaneous manner.

James Daniel
Assistant Poetry Editor

Originally from New Jersey, James Daniel has been living in San Francisco for the past ten years.  James worked on the City College of San Francisco in 2010 and 2011 as a music tutor.  He has just completed writing his first novel, Holy Roller Disco, a coming-of-age story set in the decade of the Seventies.  

Osiris Walls
Assistant Poetry Editor

You’re a student by trade, but a gamer by nature. Amateur writer by day, anime lover by night. Often caught in thought at the most awful of times – You are the God of Death, you are Osiris Walls.

Christianne Kotoff
Assistant Visual Arts Editor

I’ve been a student at CCSF for a couple years now, I’ve studied mainly with in the performing arts. Since I was really young I have found ways to express myself through the creativity I have always known.  I write everyday, and those thoughts turn into poems, and a lot of the times songs. I really live everyday not just to live but to thread that day into the path of my ultimate creative expression;  if that be through song, a performance on stage or in front of the camera.  I don’t know the way exactly I just know that I will get there.

Pam Williams
Assistant Visual Arts Editor
