Natalie Wollenzien is in her last semester of attending the University of Iowa for English and Creative Writing (and serving a long-distance relationship with her online classes). She is incredibly excited to be learning the in’s and out’s of the publishing world from manuscript to shelves, as well as what it’s like to work for an independent press. When not in the office, she enjoys loitering in coffee shops, brushing up on her Brooklyn 99 references, and petting as many dogs/cats as physically possible.

She's excited to join as part of the team!
