Sav Robinson

(they/theirs) (Capricorn)

Sav Robinson is a writer, student, and general (over)thinker who is very contentedly rooted in Chicago, Illinois. They serve as an external marketing director on the board of their college’s only writing organization, Speak Your Truth, and are currently enrolled in its undergraduate nonfiction program as well as its cultural studies minor. Presently, they are working on an anthology of their work that will encompass the things they’ve come to learn about themselves through navigating this world as a queer, non-binary person. Sav is adamant on carving out spaces where the often-complex crossroads of people’s identities are not only holistically acknowledged, but valued and respected. They are also very adamant on the belief that shouting the lyrics to Alanis Morissette's 1995 smash-hit ‘You Oughta Know’ can heal most anything.

Sav serves as Development Director and Editor of Ransack.
