~ hi ~

my name is teddy l. friedline (they/them/theirs and he/him/his). i'm a queer writer, artist, editor, & the like. here you can find some of my work, my social media, and my contact info. previously, i was thinking about cicadas, but now i've mostly moved on to arctic woolly bear moths.



i am co-founder and co-editor-in-chief (along w/ my dear best friend Iskandar Haggarty) of FAIRY PIECE MAG, a zesty little biannual magazine interested in made-up rules, the offbeat, the peculiar, & chess. i formerly served as social media editor for Collegian, washington college's campus literary & arts magazine, as well as assistant nonfiction editor for Crashtest, a darling magazine run by and for high school students.
