Sarah Brooke Bishop, Editor in Chief

Sarah Brooke Bishop, a native of McGehee, Arkansas, and graduate of Ole Miss, has been working in the journalism industry since she was 16. From advertising director to sports writer, she says in jest that she has had every role in the industry except running the press. In addition to her role with the magazine, she is currently the Events and Special Products Coordinator at the Daily Journal, where she has worked for almost six years. Sarah Brooke lives in Oxford with her husband Jeb and daughter Marion, where they enjoy cheering for the Rebels.Save



Lindsay Pace Daffron, Multimedia Editor 

Lindsay Pace Daffron is a native of Vicksburg, Mississippi, and a graduate of Mississippi State University, where she studied English literature. She loves visual storytelling just as much, though, which led her to a photography position at Mud & Magnolias. You’ll rarely find her without a cup of coffee in her hand or a song stuck in her head, and she might be wearing her favorite color, yellow. Her other hobbies include reading, writing and out-daydreaming herself. 

Kristina Domitrovich, Multimedia Editor

Kristina Domitrovich grew up in Madison, Alabama, and graduated from Mississippi State University. There, she majored in communications, concentrated in journalism and minored in English. She was also an editor for The Reflector, State’s student newspaper. All that to say, she clearly loves words. At any given time, you can find her mentally editing whatever copy she has in her hands, mooning over corgis on Instagram or ferociously creating all things tasty in her kitchen.

Leslie Criss, Associate Editor

Leslie Criss, a native of Grenada and graduate of Mississippi College, taught English to junior high and high school students in her first career. She attended graduate school at the University of Mississippi in journalism and has worked at several Mississippi newspapers, including The Vicksburg Post. She is features and special sections editor and an award-winning columnist at the Daily Journal, where she has worked for nearly 17 years. When she and her sister, a mental health professional, decided two decades ago to take a professional hiatus, they opened a restaurant in Corinth called Snickerdoodles. Leslie lives in east Tupelo with her father, her best friend and four great dogs.
