Hello! My name is Michele, and I’m currently a graduate student at Portland State University studying Book Publishing. I’m excited you’re here.
I’ve started several blogs in the past, but none lasted longer than a few months. After I finished undergrad and began applying for industry jobs, I realized my college portfolio provided many examples of my editing skills but few true writing samples. This blog is intended to be a part of my writing portfolio. To that end, some posts will be more academic in nature while others will assume a more colloquial tone. My hope is that by showcasing a broad range of tones, styles, and voices, my writing portfolio will gain a well-rounded nature that will appeal to future employers (and casual readers!).
I will publish two posts per week: a ramble and a writing-themed or book review post. Occasionally I will deviate from this schedule and post more frequently. If you have a suggestion for a book I should read or topic you’d like me to write about, leave it in the comments or shoot me a message. You can also find me on Twitter @fictionlass.
That’s all for now! Happy reading!
