Editor-in-Chief: Bill McQueen

Bill McQueen

William (you can call him Bill) McQueen is a native of rural Indiana who now calls northern Kentucky home. An MFA student of Bluegrass Writer Studio, this is his fourth year as part of the Jelly Bucket team. He spends his free time reading, writing, enjoying a variety of outdoor activities, and—to the mild amusement of his wife and children—steadfastly cheering for his beloved Cincinnati Reds and Bengals. He probably should have said beloved before wife and children, instead.

Fiction Editor: Tavian Wilson

Tavian WilsonThis year’s fiction editor, Tavian Wilson, has his B.A. in Journalism from the University of Houston, and is currently a Creative Writing student in the Bluegrass Writers Studio M.F.A. program at Eastern Kentucky University. If Tavian could only take three things to a deserted island, he would take a massive box of Gushers, as much sweet tea as he could possibly hold, and maybe a flare, if he needs any help after he runs out of Gushers and sweet tea.
He loves road trips with his dog, Sir Cunningham Samuel L. Jackson (Hammy, for short). Together, they have driven to 26 U.S. states, and their goal is to drive to all fifty. They are hoping that an insanely unnecessary highway from San Diego to Hawaii opens up within the next couple decades or so, for the sole purpose of allowing them to accomplish their dream.
When he was eight years old, he accidentally palmed a cactus like it was a basketball. This was pivotal for Tavian, and ever since then, he’s been a much more creative writer.
He wants to thank all of our readers, and everyone submitted! He, along with everyone, is looking forward to this year’s publication.
