Blake + julia
Blake is a sci-fi/fantasy focused writer who prides themselves on unprecedented word waterfalls. Born and raised in the Bronx, they like petting stray cats. They often indulge in anime, video games and fan-fiction. Blake is a 10th grader at KAPPA International and enjoys nap-time after reading good fan-made works. By the end of the program, they hope they improve on how well their critiques affect others' work and maybe know what they're talking about. Maybe.
