Editor: Vicki Barclay (she/her)
A lover of all things Modernist, Feminist, and generally subversive, Serpentine is her passion project. Vicki has self-published a novel, and her work can be found in The Idiom and Vox Populi. When she’s not writing or reading other peoples’ writing, she can be found baking overly-complicated treats, basking in her mug collection, or scouring the Earth for the perfect coffee shop. A Bostonian at heart, she now lives in Springfield, MO with her life partner and their fur baby.
Cover Art/Layout Designer: Taylor Bye (she/her)
Taylor is a Korean American artist/designer, writer, unironic enthusiast and intersectional feminist. She encountered feminism at a young age in the form of headstrong female characters in her favorite books and strong female role models in her family, but really embraced the movement while at college. She is a fierce self care and mental health advocate, and is particularly passionate about the issues of trafficking, domestic and sexual violence, and equal access to health and education. She believes art is one of the most powerful expressions of community care and social justice. She became involved in Serpentine for its mission to raise up the voices of womxn across all nationalities, races, sexual orientations, beliefs, and experiences. She hopes that you can find solidarity, empathy, and healing here. She currently resides in Maple Grove, Minnesota and works as an artist, small business owner, and full time marketing professional.
Associate Editor: Allie Sweet (she/her)
Our resident expert on feminist theory, Allie studied Social Work and Sociology at Gordon College in Massachusetts. Allie spends her days raising tiny feminists, cultivating mindful environments, indoctrinating her children to love and respect all humans, including themselves, and managing to get dinner on the table most nights in a week. Cloth diapering and gentle parenting has become a whole section of her personality. She does her best to live sustainably, consciously and with intention. If your feminism isn’t intersectional, then, no, you can’t hold her baby.
