With her dry wit, occasionally uncomfortable honesty, and surprisingly in-depth background in poetry, Max fits right in as the new copywriter for Torque.
Texas born and bred, Max has taken a meandering path to end up in Chicago. She started in her home state by earning a BA in English from the University of North Texas, before enrolling in the acclaimed Poetry MFA program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Somehow, she’s currently earning a living with that degree.
When not writing for Torque, you can find Max fronting her band Noiseland or co-hosting the discography-focused podcast Desert Island Discourse with her friend Andrew. She’s also had work published in several journals that no one has ever heard of, and is unreasonably proud of that fact
