Any highlights of your time here that you want to share?: I recently became an intern for the WFU Press, which publishes Irish poetry for distribution in North America. I love working with the Press because it gives me hands-on experience with both publishing and marketing, and awards me with far more responsibility than I ever thought I would have as an intern. Catch my favorite excerpts from our most recent publication, The Darkness of Snow by Frank Ormsby in the next edition of Potty Poetry!
Post-graduate plans: Eventually, I would like to be a ghostwriter, but after graduation I hope to go into publishing or market research.
Why I majored in English: I major in English because I love the challenge. My English courses have taught me to think critically, to write with a purpose, and to reflect on and reconsider the way I approach the world. Each of my professors has helped me to develop my analytical skills in a way that I can apply to all different disciplines. Also, my classmates continuously produce provocative, introspective work from all different viewpoints. It is humbling and inspiring to be surrounded by such thoughtful people.
