Beatrice Parr

First Reader

My name is Beatrice Parr and I recently became a First Reader for Polyphony. I am a sophomore at the Latin School of Chicago, where I participate in a variety of clubs, including Model Congress and Best Buddies. Out of school, I row for the Chicago Rowing Foundation, and I play guitar. I recently finished a great book called Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult, and my favorite TV show would have to be The Office. Thanks to the supportive and hard working group of editors at Polyphony, the community has already helped me grow as an editor and writer, and learn things that I may not have had the opportunity to learn in class. Furthermore, the talented students who write for Polyphony has inspired my own creative writing, and opened my eyes to many new writing styles and ideas.
