Please join me in welcoming Indie Blu(e) Publishing’s intern Victoria Manzi to the team! Victoria is helping Indie Blu(e) step up our social media game and promotion of our impressive catalog of books. You may have already seen some of her fabulous posts on Facebook and Instagram and we are excited to have her work her magic on our webpage and further spread news of all the exciting things happening at Indie Blu(e).
Victoria Manzi is currently a student and will receive a B.A. in English: Professional Writing in May, with the hopes of becoming a college professor. Her academic research focuses on critically analyzing literature through a queer, theoretical lens, particularly focusing on the physical and psychological spaces created by LGBTQIA+ members caused by various forms of oppression throughout time. In addition to LGBTQIA+ voices, Victoria researches the relationship between multilingual/ESL students and their university, focusing on these students’ relationship with writing, in spaces where standard vernacular English is dominate and oppressive to individuals with different language backgrounds. Victoria is passionate about raising awareness of the challenges SADVS survivors and LGBTQIA+ members face, as well as supporting the voices of underrepresented and often silenced groups.
