Hey :) I'm Shafana, a seventeen-year-old from Orlando, Florida! I've always had a passion for self-expression and storytelling and I fell in love with how journalism can be used to create a beautiful and creative platform for people to express themselves. I love how July Fire is all about capturing the teenage experience because going into my final year of high school, I've been feeling a rollercoaster of bittersweet emotions. I want to hold onto these memories of my teenage years forever and I'm beyond excited to be a part of a platform that does just that <33

Heyo! I’m Carley and I am a teenage poetry writer from Wisconsin. I’ve been published multiple times, most recently by River Train Publishing’s 2020 Summer Anthology. I like to express myself through staggered poetry, read, and listen to music. I believe it’s really important to try new things, and I’m doing that with JulyFire. 



Hi! I'm Iris, a rising junior from Ohio. I've loved to read and write since as far back as I can remember, though I only started taking my writing seriously in middle school. To me, writing is an act of self-expression and catharsis above anything else, and I believe poetry is one of its rawest forms. When I'm not writing, I can be found playing the piano and trombone, learning to crochet, or rewatching childhood shows with my friends.



Hi! I’m Talia Sablan and something very interesting about me is that I come from a small island in the Pacific known as Guam. I’m 17 years old and enjoy green tea lattes, the beach, watching Thai Dramas, and listening to true crime podcasts.




I’m Tio and i’m a writer. I’m also a July baby who loves creativity, fashion and self-expression!!
