Hello!

Nico Mara-McKay, June 2017

My name is Nico Mara-McKay, and I’m a Toronto-based writer, editor, and critic based in Toronto, Canada.

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.

My work has appeared in Broken PencilPoetry 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.)

My research interests are centred at the moment on the late medieval and early modern periods, particularly in relation to queer identities.

Sometimes I even get to publish about these topics and speak at conferences. To keep up with what’s happening, sign up for the mailing list below.
