GVSU InWriting Newsletter
In Winter of 2019, Fall of 2019, and Winter of 2020 I have written articles for InWriting, the newsletter for the GVSU writing department. This experience allows me to write about events that are relevant to my peers, as well as be involved as part of a team. The role of contributor includes attending meetings, interviewing faculty and/or students, creating an article, and attending editing meetings.
In the spring of 2019, I had the privilege of having one of my creative fiction pieces turned into a piece of wearable art. This was a collaboration between two classes at GVSU. The theme of the art show was “desire,” and we were tasked with writing a short story that related. The creative fiction piece that was featured was titled “The Hunt.”
For the exhibit walls, a brief excerpt was selected:
Books are life; Emily wholeheartedly believed this to be true. Perhaps what she collected was a little strange, but it upped the ante and finding a book that met all the criteria brought her immense satisfaction. No one else truly understood—it was honestly probably the most pointless thing to search for instead of limited or first edition copies since they were so commonly distributed—but there was something immensely magical when everything aligned to manifest from the list in her journal onto a shelf (or realistically, a pile in her living room).
