Bronwyn Isaac is a ghost who mercilessly parades herself as a Brooklyn-based writer and stand up comedian while she haunts her victims. She went to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she focused on writing and illustration before crushing student loan debt rendered her a spirit. She loves reminiscing about her former corporeality and of envisioning a world where politicians aren't (as) terrifying. You should follow her on Twitter @Bronwynisaac because you can ALWAYS use more friendly ghosts in your life.
