Rosemarie Ho is an aspiring cultural critic and journalist. A soon-to-be graduate of the University of Chicago, she is the Editor-in-Chief of The Midway Review. She was The Point Magazine‘s 2017 Metcalf Editorial Intern, and the Poetry Editor of Euphony Magazine from 2015-2016. She has a deep and abiding interest in pop culture and its tenuous relationship with politics, which you may realise from going through her Twitter feed. Current obsessions include Netflix’s BoJack Horseman, fashion trends like chokers and mom jeans that hinge on an aesthetics of nostalgia, Lucky Peach (RIP), and memes as the postmodern take on mimesis. She also prides herself on knowing something about making coffee.
Rosemarie likes cultural criticism, and not think-pieces rehashing the same view of music/literature/any given cultural artefact that’s been around for years and years, while thinking themselves new and progressive (c.f. Walter Benjamin). She promises to never write anything that falls in the latter category. She is also a poet and novelist.
If you would like, you can sign up for her TinyLetter (no spam, she promises), where she will disclose her writing projects (rumour has it that she is working on a novel).
