Alexa Napolitano
Alexa Napolitano is currently a senior at Colby-Sawyer College pursuing a Creative and Professional Writing degree. She grew up just an hour South of Colby-Sawyer in Derry, New Hampshire. Alexa discovered her love of writing in the seventh grade, after being challenged to write a book for National Novel Writing Month. The joy of writing pushed her to further her education in the art, as well as learn how to incorporate this passion into a professional context. When she is not writing, she spends most of her free time taking care of her horse, Memphis, who is featured in the photo. Alexa is a college intern on the editorial team at Under the Madness Magazine.

A magazine for teen writers—by teen writers. Under the Madness brings together student editors from across New Hampshire under the mentorship of the state poet laureate to focus on the experiences of teens from around the world. Whether you live in Berlin, NH, or Berlin, Germany—whether you wake up every day in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North or South America—we’re interested in reading you!
