I’m a senior English major with a writing concentration, who’s only a short two hours away from my home in Columbus, Ohio. I started writing for Franciscan’s student newspaper my first semester and now also work with Marketing and Communications as a media assistant. My favorite place on campus is the Stations of the Cross, which is a little known place to find some inspiration. After graduation I hope to work in publishing, where I would love to edit Catholic fiction.

An English Degree that Matters

Two weeks before the end of my junior year at Franciscan University, I made the call to the managing editor of Quarto Publishing Group, finalizing my internship for the summer. I would be traveling to Beverly, Massachusetts, less than an hour north of Boston, to work in the editorial department of a major nonfiction publisher, which is exactly what I hoped to do after graduation.
