Here’s some exciting news to start your weekend with: Geek Force Five has an intern! We’re pleased to announce that Stephen de Jesús Frías has come on board to help us get the first issue out the door.
Stephen lives in New York City and is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. In the past he’s studied short fiction with Jhumpa Lahiri and poetry with writers Major Jackson, Laurie Sheck, Thomas Sayers Ellis, Cate Marvin, and Kevin Prufer. Stephen has also worked in translation with writer Lourdes Gil. Last year, he was a reader for Sugar House Review, located in Salt Lake City, UT. He plans on pursuing a doctorate after completing his MFA. Besides getting published, he would like to teach at the university-level.
His hobbies include photography (both digital and film), as well as graphic/production design. He has three dogs, and they’re awesome.
