Student Interns

The Center for Poetry depends on the work of our talented and enthusiastic student interns to carry out our mission.


Grace Carney

Grace is a sophomore studying English with a concentration in creative writing, humanities pre-law, and health promotion. As a published writer, she spends much of her time writing poems, short stories, novels, and everything in between.


Rachel Eyre

Rachel is a junior double majoring in Arts and Humanities and Public Relations. She is originally from Laingsburg, MI. Her love of literature and poetry sparked in high school English class, and that spark led her to enroll in and pursue her Arts and Humanities degree at MSU. She is ecstatic to be able to involve that interest as an intern at the RCAH Center for Poetry.



Laura Horan

Laura is a sophomore majoring in English with a concentration in creative writing. She loves to read and write, as well as Irish dance. Miles is her service dog, who is a 3-year-old goldendoodle who loves pup cups from Starbucks. Both are excited and looking forward to expanding their knowledge during this internship!

 Kseniya Lukiy

Kseniya is an English major currently in her senior year at MSU. After immigrating to America from Russia at the tender age of five, she soon developed an affinity for the English language and has been writing ever since. Poetry grew to be a defining part of her personal writing career during early high school when all other forms of communication fell short. As an intern at the RCAH Center for Poetry, she is grateful for the opportunity to assume a more hands-on role in the world of literature.


Natalie Mannino

Natalie is a senior studying Psychology and English. She enjoys reading, writing poetry, Wes Anderson movies, and being outside. She is very excited to be a part of the RCAH Center for Poetry community and to be surrounded by others who find poetry important.



Celeste Rubino

Celeste is a history major, who is excited to learn more about arts management and cataloguing through the RCAH Center for Poetry. She is excited to learn more about the poets whose work she already knows of and to discover ones she never had the chance to hear before.
