Quote from Editor, Ellen Baird

Melissa Sabol is incredible; I don’t know where to begin. From our first meeting, she inspired us work with a larger community base and bring Howl off campus for more to enjoy. Melissa was able to see what we could not: Howl lacked identity and a widespread audience. She suggested we bring the readings into holistic events, which include local talents and businesses. Melissa is possibly the most professional person I have ever worked with; in addition to that level of ethics, she is creative, receptive, patient, humble, artistic, enthusiastic, and nurturing. Melissa has vision, and she lent that vision to Howl. Much of her time and effort was donated to the perfection of this year’s Howl.
