Taylor Hickney

Taylor Hickney is an intern for WLT who graduated in December from the University of Oklahoma with a major in English Writing and minors in both Spanish and Human Relations. In the fall, she’ll be moving to New York City to pursue an MFA in Fiction at The New School. F.

A big thanks to Amy Poehler and Mexican food for getting her this far in life.
