Inka Vappula   Editor in Chief   I'm a Master's student in English philology with a penchant for ecocriticism and education. I'm on an endless pursuit for all things authentic, weird and beautiful. I write mostly to vent and/or organise the circus parade in my head. Honoured to be the chief editor of BTSB this year.

 Danielle Amorim   Editor & Social Media Administrator   Just another English Philology student, who buys way too many books, reads unhealthy amounts of fiction, and loves color coordinating. When I manage to escape my studies I busy myself with writing short stories, trying to complete a book (a project I’m convinced will never come to an end), playing songs on my very pink guitar, dreaming of beach vacations, and hanging out with my very dreamy team of friends.

 Elina Virva   Editor & Social Media Administrator   An English major who geeks out over grammar, poetry and Romantic literature. Other passions include playing and listening to classical music, drinking litres of green tea, and swearing in French. I mostly find myself writing about quite timeless, relatable topics, oftentimes mixing some verse in there, too. You’re welcome to check out my poetry  here.

 Eveliina Kammonen   Editor & Secretary   @evekammonen I'm a fifth year English student and a hopeless (or maybe hopeful) dreamer who delights in creative activities and deep musings. In my free time I like to do photography and Instagram, learn how to code, and take long walks in the woods.

 Hanna Ojala   Editor & Webmaster   A geek from Espoo. Suffers from chronic wanderlust and an unfortunate habit of buying more books and comics than she’s got room for. The kid who always got picked last in gym class. Interests include taking naps and drinking too much coffee. Some more productive interests are writing and art. A crazy cat lady.

 Petteri Konkola   Editor & Webmaster   Just a boy from Vantaa. My interests include deep ecology, the classics, and avoiding schoolwork to the best of my ability. Like many other human beings, I firmly believe in truth, justice, and the American way. Currently studying English Philology at the University of Helsinki.

 Kaisa Leino   Editor   @TheKittykitkat Blast from the past! I'm an English philology alumni, who wrote her thesis on visual metaphors in comics. When I'm not writing for BTSB or supporting the editor individuals with fresh blood, I work in a content strategy agency. I also teach the history, theory, and drawing of comics professionally. In conclusion, I'm the ex-editor-in-chief of this paper right here, with strong opinions about the possible relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.

 Esko Suoranta   Editor   I’m currently working on a PhD in English Philology at the University of Helsinki. It's about humanity and late capitalism in contemporary speculative literature. I enjoy long walks to Judas Priest concerts, being followed by Yoko Ono on Twitter, and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. In addition to my stuff here on BTSB, you can take a look at my  fiction  or check out  an article  based on my pro gradu.

 Saara Viitanen   Editor   An aspiring singer-songwriter and a bit of a wanderer currently seeking inspiration in the Scottish Highlands. I love and live for new experiences in life, and sometimes it seems I can’t stay still. Writing is a way for me to satisfy my curiosity and organise my thoughts. I mostly write about personal experiences with a wish that others would be able to relate to it, get new insights, or just be entertained.

 Jesper Simola   Editor   @thereal_etipi I’m a graduate and resident Old Fart of the BTSB Team. These days, I teach for a living but nevertheless find time to watch horror movies, listen to podcasts, and even socialize. Also, I know way too much about wrestling.

 Milla Ihalainen   Editor   I am a fifth (possibly final) year student working on figuring out my thesis. Optimistic, often times unfiltered and enthusiastic by nature, it’s perhaps quite fitting that alongside writing for BTSB I write a blog titled “Unedited edition”. I am an adrenaline junkie and unhealthily obsessed with figure skating, which I spend all my time, energy and money on, as I not only live in the ice rink training mornings and evenings, but also work in the field with the Finnish Federation and the International Skating Union on various media projects.
