WE'RE LOOKING FOR CCP WRITING
Hello! My name is John Henry, and I am an English major at the Community College of Philadelphia. Writing has always been a constant in my life and a medium I use to express myself with. That is why it is such an honor to be able to be affiliated with Toho Publishing and to work on this ongoing project with everyone. I want to use my position to find unique perspectives at the Community College of Philadelphia and to create an infrastructure for people who know they want to write but are still trying to figure everything else out.
Lumen is a non-binary transmasculine student at Community College of Philadelphia. They study English and Creative Writing. Lumen usually writes microfiction and prose poetry, but they are making strides into writing longer works of fiction. They love helping anyone just starting to write to find their voices. They are honored to be apart of the Editorial Board for the CCPxToho collaboration. Lumen believes in the power of empowering student writers, photographers, and artists to get out into the industry and pursue possibilities.
