Announcing the New Editor, Saima Desai

Following our national job call, we are pleased to announce that Saima Desai will join Briarpatch as the new editor in February.

Saima Desai cut her teeth as a writer and editor for the McGill Daily, while she earned a degree in philosophy. She reads and writes about sexual assault, migrant justice, and South Asian politics. You can find her gently escorting spiders from a room in her cupped hands. Follow her on Twitter at @saima_desai.
