Founded in the summer of 2018 by Riley Baker and Hannah Han, The Stirling Spoon is an online literary magazine dedicated to showcasing the creative works of both emerging and established writers. The ultimate goal of the magazine is to present its readers with emotionally captivating and imaginative poetry and prose. The Stirling Spoon publishes two issues per year, one in the summer, around August, and one in the winter, around January.
Hannah Han lives in Los Angeles, California. She is the co-editor-in-chief of The Stirling Spoon and reads submissions for prose and art. In the past year, she has received recognition for her work from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, the Journalism Education Association, and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. Besides reading and writing, Hannah enjoys drawing, eating churros, stalking Goodreads, and sleeping in.
Riley Baker now lives in Delaware but originally hails from the Chicago area. As one of two editors of The Stirling Spoon, Riley reviews both the poetry and prose submissions. She has also been recognized by the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards and has attended the Great Books Summer Program at Stanford and Amherst for five years now. Riley has been rotating obsessions with different things and currently seems to be stuck on Vietnamese iced coffee, Herman Koch novels, and sorting pictures of people in iPhoto by their faces.
