My name is Nico Mara-McKay, and I’m a Toronto-based writer, editor, and critic.
I like history, monsters, and the Oxford comma. Sometimes I write about these things.
I currently serve as the editor-in-chief for Spiral Nature Magazine and the copyeditor for Broken Pencil Magazine, and my work has appeared in Broken Pencil, Poetry is Dead, Quill & Quire, among other places.
However, at the moment I’m completing my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, a double major in Historical Studies and Art History, with a minor in History of Religions. (I really like history.)
In the fall of 2019, I will be beginning my Master’s at the University of Guelph as a part of the Tri-Unviersity Graduate Program in History.
My research interests are centred on queer identities in late medieval and early modern Europe. I also have an interest in visual and material culture, particularly as it relates to these periods.
Nerd. I know, right?
