  • She interned as a writer for Hollywood Insider and wrote over 30 articles, some of which were turned into video pieces.
  • Z has been a featured poet for the Moonstone Arts Center.


Zenobia has been a creative writer all her life, starting with comics at four, screenplays at 10, and poetry portfolios at 13. In addition to her editing work for her college's literary magazine, the Underground Pool, she specializes in many styles and genres and has recently added journalism to her repertoire. For the latter half of her sophomore year, Z was a Hollywood Insider intern, where she had the opportunity to cover the Chris Rock and Will Smith Oscars slap, bring awareness to the Acting Your Age Campaign, and share her analyses of some of her favorite TV shows. Her work with HI caught the attention of Nicki Swift, where she is now a freelance features writer. Currently working toward finishing her BFA with a thesis on short stories and poetry, Z hopes to continue writing for online publications.


Zenobia received scholarships for their work in several high school writing clubs and is currently working toward their BFA in Creative Writing at the University of the Arts.
