Whitney Naylor-Smith studies and teaches English at Marshall University. She is Editor-in-Chief of the literary magazine Et Cetera and lives just outside of Huntington, WV with her daughter. She writes creative nonfiction and scholarship on women's writing and feminist rhetorics. Years before she truly understood the word "feminism," she felt it in Sylvia Plath's poetry. She is thrilled for her first publication to appear in a journal dedicated to the remarkable legacy of Plath.
