Meet Taylor!

If you’re like us, it’s getting to be around that time where first exams and papers of the semester are piling up. While we can’t offer you much help in that department, we can offer you this brand new installment in our Meet the Council series to brighten your day via an introduction to one of our lovely councilwomen. We may be getting into the last few members of our Editorial Council, but we’ve still got some awesome women left for you to meet!

To recap, our magazine is edited, designed, published, and promoted by a small group of BC’s undergraduate women each year, and we count ourselves lucky to attract some of the smartest and savviest snake-ladies that Boston College has to offer. Putting together a full publication each semester is a labor of love, and this year we’re turning the spotlight to the group of 13 awesome women who make it possible. Check back over the next few weeks to meet the full council, head here if you missed getting to know Sonja last week, and read on right now to meet the talented Taylor Puccini!


Taylor 1

Taylor has been at the heart of the Medusa Council since she first joined our ranks in 2015. If you’ve sent us an email or submitted your work in the last couple of years, you have Taylor to thank for making sure it was seen—she’s been our Director of Submissions (AKA Unofficial Email Queen) since her second year on the Council. Outside of the Medusa, Taylor also kicks butt as a double major in Marketing and English and writes her own fabulous poetry, a selection of which can be found in our most recent zine! To top that off, here’s a few more tidbits about Taylor:

Favorite literary quote?

“We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom.
We lived in the gaps between the stories.” 

― The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Personal female icon?

I’m consistently inspired by Emma Watson and her efforts to promote gender equality. Though of course I’m a huge Hermione fan (literally the biggest fan), it’s Watson’s feminism that makes her iconic.
Where can you find her outside of the Medusa?
Succumbing to her coffee addiction daily, probably at Dunkin’ Donuts or the Chocolate Bar. Also hit Taylor up on social media: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
