Audrey Ryback, Assistant Poetry Editor

Mostly and above all, I love to read. Having grown up in limbo between Austria and France, now finishing my studies in the UK, I have found myself becoming increasingly fascinated and perplexed by languages, their meanings, sounds and structures. Especially in poetry I have found language used in extremely versatile and agile ways. Although I consider myself mainly a reader, I occasionally enjoy crafting together words and sentences. The Missing Slate has offered itself as an opportunity for me to finally get involved in the world of Literary Publishing in a wonderfully international, young and open forum. This unique setting has allowed me to read poetry from all corners of the world for the first time. The Missing Slate is an exciting and dynamic enterprise; and I hope I will be able to leave my inky fingerprints all over it very soon.
