Sydney Leibfritz (she/her) is a writer and publishing hopeful from suburban Nashville. She frequents Target parking lots, independent coffee shops, used bookstores, and state parks; she also writes a suspicious amount of love stories for a self-proclaimed cynic. She officially works as a library assistant, but honestly spends too much time rummaging through the stacks, avoiding patrons, and adding titles to her impossibly long and ever-growing reading list. An avid fan of Shirley Jackson and Toni Morrison, Sydney gravitates towards the psychological and introspective, strained relationships, complex manifestations of love, and hauntings.
Carlos Zayas-Pons (he/him) is one of the founding members of Ample Remains. He received his B. A. from Sewanee: The University of the South and recently completed an internship at The Paris Review. Now, he is working at Sewanee's School of Letters. Through Ample Remains, Carlos hopes to boost fresh voices in this new digital age of literature where the next revolutionary work could just as easily be an anonymous blog post as a Pulitzer winning book. Without the arbitrary distinction of “high” and “low” culture, Carlos believes the potential of language will flourish.
