These are writings that either have been published or otherwise were prepared for publication and/or contest submission.

An strong reader from a young age, I was soon enchanted by writing as I realized that I too can make words sound like the way they do in the books I read. Once I switched to a keyboard (I never really liked the physical act of writing much among other things), my interest in writing deepened, for now it was even easier to get words on pages.

I have an English major (and a history minor) at Simon Fraser University (2013) with a background in English-language literature (mostly Canadian and British lit) and some rhetoric (not really classic rhetoric though).  In high school, I also enjoyed creative writing and I hope to get back to that as well.

I love the rhythm and eloquence of words.

In particular, I focus on poetry and creative non-fiction. I also occasionally dabble in (prose) fiction.

You can also find some creative non-fiction and poetry throughout my blog posts (when I write them, that is).

I don’t know if I will write professionally (probably in copywriting or technical writing), but I do intend to write (and hopefully publish) creative non-fiction and poetry as a hobby or side job.
