Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by, today I am ecstatic to be arts calling Madeleine Corley!

About our guest:

Madeleine Corley has multiple interests with her main affinity simply being words. From elaborate acrostics to black-out found poems, she adores fitting concepts into tight spaces to create a puzzle.

Madeleine received her Bachelors Degree in Public Health from The Ohio State University in 2017, where she additionally acquired a minor in Leadership Studies. Her years at university brought about a love for travel through studying abroad, for literacy through a Penpal program she expanded, and for events and programming through her involvement in BuckeyeThon fundraising and morale.

After university, she spent time in Dublin, Ireland, where she expanded her poetry and literary experience through performance and small event planning. She was a regular at the New Romantics Poetry night and an organizer for a local Meetup group where she focused on prompt writing and facilitating relationships between writers.

She began her tenure as the Poetry Editor for Barren Magazine in December 2018 and has been in the role since.
