Clara Cribb

Depressive Ways
Fine Arts Major/English Minor - Class of 2018

I’m currently living in Trenton, NJ. I’m transfer student from Bloomfield College in Bloomfield, NJ. I love the different aspects that are associated with art: painting, photography, video, sewing, etc. Creating an entity with your hands and the mind is something that I’ve always been fascinated with. My current focus is painting, but I love to experiment with photography.

I’m currently a Junior and an English major. I’m a big fan of Romantic era literature as well as Gothic and contemporary horror. Some of my favorite poets and writers are Percy and Mary Shelley, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, John Keats, and other British romantics.

Albert Mancao

Vengeance, The Knight, and Batman: High Art In Comics and Cartoons
English Major - Class of 2020

I grew up in a little town called Pennsauken which is a stone’s throw away from Camden. I intend on becoming a fiction writer; however, life would most likely turn me into a guidance counselor or something else that isn’t a writer. To describe me in three words, I would consider myself as hilarious, skilled, and gorgeous, but others–”realists” is what they like to call themselves–would describe me as delusional, arrogant, and a 5/10 at best.

Breanna Ransome

English Major - Class of 2017

Breanna’s inherent love of language has reached new depths over the course of her undergraduate education at Rutgers State University, Camden Campus. As an avid reader and writer of both creative and academic works, she’s found her most rewarding endeavors include advocating for the Humanities and utilizing her background in Linguistics and Anthropology to understand and harness the implications and power of language. Breanna has recently accepted an offer of admission to RUC’s graduate program and will begin working toward earning her Master of Arts in English in Fall 2017. She would like to thank her Creative Writing instructor, Adam Janos, for essentially providing a space in which the short story Winter had the opportunity to develop and reach its full potential.
