Editor in Chief
Rachel Holbrook lives in Knoxville, Tennessee with her husband and six children. She is a member of Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society.
Rachel fell in love with words and literature as a child, and has spent her life with her nose in a book. She began writing poetry and short stories when she was nine years old. Her first publication was her poem The Bible in her Granny’s church bulletin when she was ten years old. Seeing her name in print in strangers’ hands was the first small taste of what she knew she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She received awards for writing in middle school, high school and college, but put her writing dreams on hold for a decade while starting a family. When her last two children entered Kindergarten, Rachel finally completed the manuscript for her first novel and began writing the syndicated serial, Little River. Rachel has enjoyed a string of publications in literary journals throughout 2015, 2016, and 2017. In March 2018, she was presented with an Honorary Mention and a monetary award at the International English Honor Society’s annual convention for her presented short story “A Slow Burn.” Rachel received the “Springs of Helicon Award for Poetry” in April 2018.
Rachel founded the Same in the summer of 2017, launching it into the world on September 4, 2017. It is her fervent hope that the journal will be a vibrant and continued platform from which to advance and celebrate the voices of women and girls.
Book Review Editor
Anusha Srinivasan is an environmental engineer, who remembered after five years of university education that she used to want to become a journalist.
She doesn’t have any grand stories about how she’d known she wanted to write since she was three. She started writing on her blog, amuse-douche, during a particularly low phase in life, after being told she had many opinions and occasionally expressed herself well.
Anusha is also involved with The World of Apu, a multi-lingual online film magazine, as Contributing Editor. She regularly reads and evaluates submissions for Creative Nonfiction, a literary magazine based in Pittsburgh. Someday, she hopes to feel confident enough to call herself a writer.
You can connect with Anusha on Twitter and Instagram @anusrini20.
Reading, cooking, eating are her other loves. And she wants you to recycle.
