Harpur Palate is managed by graduate students in Binghamton University’s Department of English. Meet our current staff:

Co-Editors in Chief:

Jamey McDermott

Jamey McDermott is a fiction writer & Ph.D. student at Binghamton University. He grew up in the metro Atlanta area & received his M.F.A. from Georgia State University. He has omnivorous tastes, but he especially likes stories that are off-kilter—the kind of fiction that makes the world seem like a different place after reading it. Above all, he wants stories he hasn’t read before. In his spare time, he loves low-budget horror movies & comic books. He misses having the time & space to play drums.


Hannah Carr-Murphy is a poet and musician from Black Hawk County, Iowa. Her poetry has appeared in journals Common Ground Review, Presence: A Journal of Catholic Poetry, and Adanna as well as anthologies Exs (Final Thursday), Double Kiss (Mammoth Books), and Spectral Lines (Alternating Currents). Previously, Hannah worked as Production Coordinator for North American Review at University of Northern Iowa and as Layout/Design Editor for An Focal at University of Limerick, Ireland.
