Ebenezer Samuel “Sam” Luna Rojas is currently a student in the College of Arts and Sciences at XU, taking up a degree in Literature. His interests include speculative fiction, Shakespearean Studies, and Monster fiction. Although Sam cannot write a poem to save his life, he developed his love for playwrighting and theater after working with (and for) several Palanca Award winning writers including Glenn Sevilla Mas and Guelan Varela-Luarca. Sam has served as a technical director in Shakespearean productions (The Taming of the Shrew, 2019), modern productions (Rent, 2019), and in various theater lab festivals.

Currently, Sam is finishing his degree while working on various scripts, and making an occasional foray into novel writing.
