Elisabeth Kaukonen is a second year student of Estonian Philology at Tallinn University. Besides studying, she writes poetry, prose, and practices Estonian folk dance. Elisabeth has  considered writing poetry her passion from a very young age, and her poems have been published in a „Värske Rõhk“- an Estonian literary magazine publishing the work of young authors.

Marilyn Mägi studies history at the University of Tartu, and is soon about to become a three-time co-author of „Värske Rõhk“. In addition to writing, she finds time for Estonian folk dance and teaching sexual education. Ironically, she is not too fond of writing about history. She does, however love sandwiches, the Great Northern War, and Latvia.

Elisabeth and Marilyn share a common passion for the beauty of words.
