Our 2012 staff was small but mighty, with Alyssa Westgate and Shosh Moore efficiently and creatively putting together the 2nd edition of BC’s online literary magazine.

Shoshana (Shosh) Moore has returned to college studies after nearly 20 years working in the environmental and engineering consulting industry.  In addition to pursuing her education, she works part-time in BC’s Writing Lab as a tutor.  She makes her home in Bellevue.

Alyssa Anne Westgate has lived in many cities in the United States, including Los Angeles and Buffalo, NY.  After a lot of shuffling around she has finally landed in Seattle, with her husband, two crazy dogs and three cats.  She is pursuing a BA in English, and hopes to transfer to UW in the fall.  She likes to take pictures, especially of her pets and the beautiful Northwest, as well as paint, and garden organically.


Many thanks go to this first staff of Belletrist, for their creativity, energy, and innovation in putting together Bellevue College’s very first online literary magazine!
