Founder & Editor-in-Chief
Christine T. is a high school junior who loves storytelling in all forms. She fell in love with reading and writing at a young age. However, in elementary school, she felt she didn’t have easy and accessible ways to receive support and share her work with a wider audience. Christine founded Blue Sage Magazine in the summer of 2020 to provide young writers and artists with a space to share their voices.
Christine especially enjoys writing short fiction, and her work has been recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, the California Association of Teachers of English, and KidsWrite! San Diego. She is also an editor for Polyphony Lit. When she’s not reading or writing, she can be found spending time with her family, baking, or hanging out with her adorable three-year-old dog.
Niamh M. is a high school junior who has loved reading and storytelling since the age of three. She started writing her own short stories a few years later, and writing has been a passion of hers ever since. She was previously an editor for her middle school’s literary magazine. As much as she loves reading and rereading her favorite novels, she also enjoys dancing, listening to music, going to the beach, and making TikToks.
Alena Gray is a senior in high school in Charles County, Maryland with an avid love for reading and writing. Thanks to the Percy Jackson series, her favorite genres are Science Fiction and Fantasy. Besides reading, Alena loves to play Tennis with her family and compete on her Destination Imagination Team. She’s excited to edit for Blue Sage Magazine and can’t wait read your submissions!
Julie Arenas-Antonio is a high school senior from Birmingham, Alabama, who was a storyteller before she realized she was a writer. She is the author of two poetry books, The Midnight Song and After the Rain, that she has written under her pen name. Her top three favorite genres to read are sci-fi, fantasy, and/or the classics. In her free time, when she isn’t writing, she likes drawing faraway places, listening to foreign music, watching K-dramas, or watching crime mystery shows.
Ysabella Z. is a high school junior living in Texas. She enjoys running her school’s literary magazine, listening to musical soundtracks obsessively, learning new things, thinking about everything and nothing, and scrolling through Pinterest. She enjoys writing scripts and research essays, and her reading niche is currently historical non-fiction.
