Author: Frankie Knuckles
Frankie Knuckles (Senior Editor) is a rising junior at Vassar, pursuing a double major in English and philosophy and a correlate in Women’s Studies, all while serving as a Senior Editor for The Miscellany News. Frankie runs the Misc’s advice column, Quite Frankly, and enjoys sharing personal woes, as well as philosophical approaches to everyday struggles, so that others can learn from them (or laugh at them). Frankie’s summer base is Boston, where days are filled with an editorial internship in the book publishing industry, wanderings around historical sites and writing without deadlines for once. Inspiration comes from many places, including Lorrie Moore, Sara Ahmed, Rainbow Rowell and many memoirists with varying degrees of popularity who share their unique lived experiences, including the likes of George Watsky, Tan France and Michelle Obama. When not writing for the Misc or its affiliate websites, Frankie can be found drinking entirely too much coffee or knitting seasonally inappropriate garments.
