Sarah Mayo – Editor-in-Chief

‘Dear old world’, she murmured, ‘you are very lovely, and I’m glad to be alive in you.’” – L.M. Montgomery. A 3rd year English major, Sarah is overjoyed to continue being apart of the creative writing community at UCI. She is a fan of coffee, fresh flowers, poetry and television, and is sometimes overwhelmed by the sheer number of books to read and content to watch. She is always trying to be a more quality human being, and believes that joy can be found in the right Beatles song at the right time. Much like Patsy Cline, she enjoys walks after midnight.


Adam Timms – Financial Director

If anyone knows what Adam is up to, make sure to let him know. He’s constantly torn between about 19 things and striving to perfect them all while laughing at the ridiculousness of his situation. I’m serious when I say that I talk him out of about four new projects every week. Current professional driver, editor, nursing student, writer, and dungeon master… when not being distracted by everything else that’s going on.

Misha Ponnuraju

Heartbroken by not being able to be everywhere at once, Misha has spent her four years at UC Irvine trying her best. Her life as an undergraduate is dwindling away. In her past life, she was an active leader of both New Forum and Soulstice League, as well as a Campus Representative. Also in her past life, she wrote her first collection of poetry and prose –“Love Set You Going: Studies in Space and Time” — which she continues to edit.  She spends her free time organizing her home library. As Misha embarks on her final quarter of UC Irvine, she will be preoccupied by the future, job applications, and whatever  Phoebe Waller-Bridge is working on.

Karina Mercedes Martinez

Karina is passionate about the art of self-expression, which is why she’s thrilled to be dedicating herself to New Forum during her last year at UCI. She believes all the answers lie in the words we spill onto pages once those critical voices have been put to bed. Her ambition in life is to make it out on the other side of whatever’s coming next, and to always be around creative people.
