Kellie Hogan is the only person who Kellie Hogan finds funny; don’t even try to make her laugh unless you’ve won a daytime Emmy. She gets most of her work done at 3 am, after spending the entire day sleeping, painting her nails, and redecorating. One day in the not-so-distant future, you will see her writing and directing films, running this li’l magazine, writing post-postmodern novellas, and walking her 4 dogs. This is her website.

Gabrielle attends the University of Chicago, where she studies Character Development (for real). She hates the phrase “guilty pleasure,” but loves “chick flick.” Her dream is to tell stories about the people she isn’t and to never grow out of her 90s teen angst phase (which she entered relatively late, at the age of 18). She can be found tweeting on one of six Twitter accounts at any given time, but the one you’d probably enjoy reading is @gabriellemcosta.
