About Us

Julia Unger


Julia Unger is a senior double majoring in English and Writing & Rhetoric. She believes that creating and studying art is a vital part of education. As a child, she could often be found reading Harry Potter in a tree in the backyard, and this attitude has not stopped since. She hopes to become a librarian to foster a love of literature and art in future generations. In her spare time, she can be found drinking coffee or calling her mom.

Bridget Elmore

Event Planner

Bridget is a sophmore English major who loves learning and making her own clothes, but not the ones with Winnie the Pooh—she stole those from her mom. Bridget plans on being a published author one day relatively soon, and a lot of the time, you can find her crying in a tree because of how pretty the sky is. She fell in love with literary arts magazines in high school when she was the only person who really cared about their lit-mag, and she’s so happy to have found such an awesome place for arts and writing as ether(bound).

She is extremely happy that she has found such a nice and welcoming group of like-minded literature- and art-lovers at (ether)bound. In her free-time, Laura can most often be seen reading, baking, or watching British crime series.

Maria Cherry
