    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

Reading Alice Munro

In my Creative Writing: Working with Form course, we have been asked to study a mentor’s writing. I chose Alice Munro, a Canadian short story writer born in the early 20th century. Her work is truly magical, and I have found a lot of inspiration through reading her stories. We are actually quite similar as writers, in the sense of plot and style. She likes to write about people, relationships, and life. She carries her characters through the pages with grace, letting them interact with others and finding ways for them to learn and be effected by the world around them. I also like to write about people, but I tend to focus on their internal battles. Through reading multiple stories of hers, I have found a deeper, more personal understanding of her writing. I have also gained a greater understanding of the short story as a form. I am very keen on developing my current work and observing where my writing progresses as my days go on.
