#14 Editorial Team

Bohdi Byles

Bohdi is the leader of the editorial team for the 14th issue of The Quarry. His roles have involved Editing, Marketing and Management. He has been an avid bibliophile since he was a child. With a B.A majoring in Writing and Gender Studies under his belt, and a Masters of Creative Writing just around the corner, he has always wanted to provide the escapism in books for others that he was able to hide away in.

Bohdi enjoys researching and discussing social issues, specifically in relation to gender and sexuality, as well as shame and vulnerability, and he likes to employ this research creatively when he is able to.
