Ellisa Goldberg is an eighteen-year-old Ravenclaw who can only write coherently when asleep. Most of her time is spent cutting things out of magazines for collages which will never be made, trying to stay afloat in the ever-growing sea of books she keeps meaning to read, and assuring dubious strangers on the subway that she does, in fact, speak English. She was born in Queens, raised in northern New Jersey, and intends to spend the rest of her natural life in Manhattan, where she has lived since the age of twelve. All her energies are currently being funneled into a desperate campaign to survive her freshman year at NYU, which would probably be easier if there were a legal way for her to make tea in her dorm room.
Ellisa’s name is probably pronounced əllɪsə, but has been butchered so many times over the years that nobody’s really sure anymore. Her hobbies include wearing impressively tall shoes, petting cats, and having dinner at least twice a day. She excels at copyediting and baking, is a fan of the oxford comma and poetry slams, and feels obligated to get a tumblr now that she writes for The Juvenilia.
