Trisha Tobias is Associate Fiction Editor for FORESHADOW: A Serial YA Anthology, a freelance editor, and a 2018 Walter Dean Myers Grant recipient. She holds a BA in Media and Communication Studies from Fordham University with a minor in Creative Writing. In her “free time,” Trisha can be found playing The Sims, connecting with her tarot cards, making too many to-do lists, or crying over her favorite Disney movies like the adult she is. 

Trisha adores all things YA, particularly with a romantic component and certainly if it’s a bit more “edgy.” If you need help with fleshing out characters, romantic arcs, emotional resonance, or line edits/proofreading, she’d love to help!
