Izzy Paggioli, Features Editor

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Features section! Last year I was a reporter, and this year I’m super excited to be taking
on the role of your Features Editor of the Saga for 2022-2023. My role entails editing articles and providing help to the journalists in my section. My goal is to publish creative, impactful content voicing the stories of people in our community. I want to include a balanced mix of both heavy and light pieces to provide content to a variety of interests in the East Lyme community. I aim to provide a safe and easily accessible platform for people to express their voice; never hesitate to reach out!

Happy reading everyone!
