Class of 2020 Bachelor of Arts in English Creative Writing
Currently an MFA Candidate in Poetry at Washington University in St. Louis
"I had the privilege and great fortune to attend Lincoln University and take part in their English Creative Writing Program, where I was challenged by an inclusive and supportive community of faculty members and fellow classmates to better my craft; to enter and engage in work (whether it be literature, essays, prose, poetry, or nonfiction) with a considerate and critical eye. I owe a debt of gratitude to all of the professors and instructors in the English program, but especially to creative writing specialists Elijah Burrell and Daren Dean—for their knowledge, care, and encouragement. I have taken their insight on plot and prosody, pace and form, voice and sonics and radical revision into my own writing and teaching, and I often look back on those important lessons with fondness and nostalgia."
