New Voices has been proudly run by the young and inexperienced for over 40 years. Our editor in chief is always a recent college graduate, while the rest of the writing, editing, janitorial work, etc. is done entirely by college students.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Amram has since been transplanted to Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where he is a rising junior in a joint undergraduate program with the Jewish Theological Seminary and Columbia University. He survives on a questionable (but delicious) mixture of kale, caffeine, niggunim, P!nk, and books on Jewish History.

Josh Weiss

As a die-hard lover of pop culture, he loves reading and writing about movies, superheroes, hardboiled noir mysteries, and alternate histories.
