BA Creative Writing & English - Fiction

"I have really enjoyed the time I've spent at SNHU!"

You could say my life revolves around books. I have been a library manager for ten-and-a-half years, a bookstore owner for less than a year and a writer for as long as I can remember. I have always been a lifelong learner and interested in the world around me. It has been important for me to gain as much knowledge about everything as I can. That is why I chose to take my bachelor’s degree in creative writing. Talking with other authors has already given me great feedback that has helped me polish my craft.

Of course, not all of my classes are related to creative writing. However, focusing my attention in each class on what I can learn that will help me improve my writing is a key to my success. I work full-time, own my own business, volunteer in the community and try to find time for writing in between as well as school. To me, this just proves that if you want something bad enough, there is always time to do it! I have really enjoyed the time I've spent at SNHU! I have learned a lot from the instructors and other students that I have had the pleasure to interact with. I am looking forward to my future classes!
