Hailey Stewart, the editor-in-chief of Blot Magazine and The Argonaut opinion editor, found a home in the student newsroom three years ago and never left. Her infatuation with all things writing and political culture is what drove the University of Idaho junior to pursue journalism and political science.
Hailey has a rather unusual passion for presidential families, the 1960s, em dashes and Fruit Roll-Ups. When she isn’t in the office editing or interviewing sources, Hailey is most often found studying, reading on the Admin Lawn or Snapchatting her mom.
After graduating in 2019, Hailey plans to continue writing wherever life takes her — preferably on a coastline. The New Yorker, Sunset Magazine and Capitol Hill would all be amazing places to call home after Blot Magazine, but she’ll be happy anywhere, as long as she is given a notepad and a deadline.
