Current Editorial Team

Manahil Bandukwala | Jaya Budhia | Alison Griffith | Chloe Kohlman

Manahil is a tea-loving writer and artist currently living in Ottawa. Her work has appeared in In/Words, Bywords, the Ottawa Arts Review, the shreeking violet press, battleaxe press, where is the river, and Existere, among others. She coordinates performers for In/Words events on her phone during her commute to and from work every day. Possibly even during work. Find her work on her website,

Jaya stumbled into the In/words office, and the staff can’t figure out how to get rid of her so they let her format. She is mostly human, though her sleep schedule says otherwise. She is a psychology major who likes to think of herself as a writer, photographer, graphic designer, and poet. Her only published work is found in The Valley Below, a 2011 Young Writer’s Anthology (don’t read it – it’s from 8th grade).

Chloe is a sleep deprived, coffee loving English major. Between In/Words, school, and teaching ESL, Chloe writes fictions and attempts to write poetry. Her first published work can be found in “The Stranger Side of Tomorrow: A Science Fiction Anthology”
