Bailey James, Article Sharpener


Bailey James @RecessiveGeneQ
Queens, New York

Bailey is something of a disaster in the kitchen; her level of competency peaked at age two, when she assisted her mother by banging on pots and pans on the floor while real cooking was happening above. Ever since, she’s been trying to make up for lost time and spectacularly botches such complex culinary mysteries as quesadillas and grilled cheese on a regular basis. Fortunately, she’s better at writing than food preparation and serves as Silver Spork’s editorial wrangler of wily diction in addition to working as a marketing assistant at a textbook imprint of Macmillan. She also writes video game reviews over at and can usually be found snacking on cheese in her Queens apartment.
