BA in English (2014) from Marshall University
I am a first-year MFA student in creative writing, specializing in fiction but with an interest in poetry and creative nonfiction as well. Recently I graduated from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia with a BA in English. My capstone research topic was "Let Me Tell You: Narrative in the Creative Writing Genres," research that focused on what genre means--its limitations, commonalities, and strengths. I have studied abroad in England and Bulgaria. Born and raised in West Virginia, I have a strong interest in Appalachia and I am glad to pursue graduate studies as a Wildcat!
