Creative Writing Majors (Part 1)

Posted by on May 19, 2015 in Feature, Vlogs | 0 comments

This episode was split into parts because it was so long. In it, I asked two of my good friends, Rory and Kelly, to help me give you some insight into being a Creative Writing Major. They’re both seniors (just graduated a few days ago) and have been to more colleges than just Agnes Scott. So they provide more information than someone (me) two classes below with less experiences could provide.

If you have any specific questions, please comment on the video and I will answer them to the best of my ability.

Don’t forget to watch Part 2! I’ll let you know on Twitter once it’s uploaded.

Glimmers

Posted by on Mar 28, 2015 in Feature, Vlogs | 0 comments

This video describes a technique similar to writing prompts that tell you to use the word, for example, “orange” in a short story. The main difference really is that you can use the word given in the prompt once and then never again. I like to think of glimmers as having a little more meaning to them than that. (Though, they can be used like those prompts if you wish.)
