Who’s on the board? Say hello to Julia Guarch


Julia Guarch is the new Vice President. They joined the board in March 2018. Read on to learn more about them.

  1. Pronouns: I have a terrible relationship with all pronouns. My friends use shme/shmer/shmim for me, but I’m used to people referring to me by any of the “traditional” pronouns (they, she, he).
  2. What do you like to write? I primarily write poetry. I sometimes wander into the world of prose and screenplays, though.
  3. Where do you live? I live about 45 minutes from Orlando, 15 minutes from Sanford, and 45 minutes from Daytona Beach, Florida.
  4. What’s your job? I work as a substitute teacher at a charter school, and I am a “Birthday Party Hero” at the Daytona Ice Arena. I’m currently applying for MFA programs.
  5. What’s your favorite LGBTQ-related book or book by an LGBTQ author? I’m still trying to figure that one out.
  6. If you could have any superpower, what would it be? My superpower would depend on the world we are talking about. If we are in a world where everyone has superpowers, I would like one where I can copy and store other folks’ powers for at least a week. I’d probably call myself “Derivative” like the nerd that I am. If I am the only one (or one of few) who has a superpower, I’d probably like the power to manipulate elements (water, fire, earth, wind, aether). I’d call myself “Elementary” like the nerd that I am.
  7. Coffee or tea? Milk or dark chocolate? Print or e-reader? Tea. All the tea (except chai)! Milk or dark chocolate as long as it has oranges in it. Print. (Only e-reader when more convenient).
  8. Fun facts: I’m currently learning how to figure skate. I’m at the Adult Pre-Bronze Freestyle level. Digital art: I am still screaming at my tablet that I know how to draw, so why won’t it do what I want it do. Knitting: I now have five beanies and two scarves I did not have before. Music editing: Audacity deleted half of my work. I cried. Actually staying on a writing schedule: Let’s not talk about that.
