Hi! My name is Virginia. You can call me Vinny.

I am a poet, non-fiction writer, and freelance editor who was raised in the literary and theater scenes of the 1990’s East Village. An alumna of The New School’s Graduate Creative Writing program, I became Editor-in-Chief at LIT Magazine in 2018 where I learned how to manage a website and how to curate effective, targeted content that can’t be found anywhere else.
