Artist Bio

Julie Armstrong is a burgeoning poet and a lover of words. She graduated from Washington College in 2015 with a BA in English and creative writing. During her time as an undergrad, she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Tau Delta, the English honor society, and was one of six finalists for the 2015 Sophie Kerr Prize, the biggest undergraduate literary prize in the country. Fascinated by translation and the intricacies of different languages, she deeply enjoys writing about God and Christianity, family, dreams, traveling, and the experience of reading other poets. In her spare time, she likes to watch various sci-fi TV shows, read fantasy novels and poetry, and flail over a myriad of beloved fictional characters. She now works for her alma mater as the administtative assistant for the Rose O'Neill Literary House
