Izzy Tiernan is the eldest of the Lit committee, but is yet to find some grey hairs. She’s 17 and is the Chairperson, having been a part of The Lit in the far-off time of 2016! She loves poetry, spoken-word and prefers Vine to Tiktok. Her favorite poet is Emily Dickinson and you can find her drinking copious amounts of coffee while reciting pretentious sonnets to whomever might listen. She’s excited for her fourth year of the festival.
