Contributor Limelight: Avrey Evans

Starting off as an Editorial Intern in the fall of 2019, Avrey Evans has had her turn in many crucial roles here at SLUG Magazine. As a contributing writer and copy editor in addition to her year-long internship, Evans has graced our publication with her talents and voice both on paper and behind the scenes. As a local bartender at Post Office Place, Evans brings her professional insight to the team through her coverage of the spirits industry and local bar scene. In this issue, check out her feature on The Bar Project on pg. 6, where she delights us with her playful prose and knowledge for the local spirits industry. While Evans’ internship has recently reached its end, we feel blessed to keep Evans’s writing and editing skills on the team
