As Festival Assistant, Victoria helps with all aspects of planning and producing the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, from coordinating High School Student Day to proofreading the program. If you call with a question as the Festival draws near, chances are you’ll talk to Victoria. 

Victoria graduated from Drew University with honors in English and Creative Writing in 2013. A selection from her thesis, “The Representations, Reception and Reputation of Jane Austen in Women’s Literary Culture,” was awarded an Honorable Mention by the New Jersey Women's and Gender Studies Consortium, and her essay “Garden State” was published in the anthology Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It. She has been a featured writer at Arts by the People’s The Platform series and Montclair State University’s Live Lit series.

Victoria loves tea, road trips, yoga and trees.
