Fresh Ink’s 2021-2020 editorial board members come to us from diverse backgrounds, but all share a passion for writing and a desire to engage their Jewish peers. The board helps develop Fresh Ink, thinking of new and creative ideas on how we can best reach students. In addition to writing, each member also has an opportunity to develop specific skills they would like to hone, such as social media, editing and design.
