Our Editors

Meet the Terrain.org team, including genre editors, editorial interns, contributing editors, and our international editorial board.

Terrain.org is composed of two editorial bodies: editors, who assemble the magazine, and our editorial board, made up of leaders in the literary and environmental arenas from across the U.S. and beyond, who serve in an advisory capacity. Our editorial interns help us with a wide array of activities, and contributing editors include regular writers and content contributors.
