Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! I'm a freshman and prospective English and psychology major at Stanford. I've taught creative writing to middle school students for the past three years, and I myself love to write short stories and novels. I also write for the Stanford Daily, practice taekwondo, and spend copious amounts of time zoning out. So excited to meet you all!

H7318: Build-A-World™ in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
Skirt the rules of time. Sidestep the laws of gravity. Smelt the secrets of hidden friendships. Create the world of your dreams, whether it stretches across galaxies or fits in the palm of your hand. In this workshop, we will explore different scopes of worldbuilding in pop culture and literature, from the vast and expansive (The Avengers MCU, Rick and Morty, Star Wars, Harry Potter) to the personal and intimate (the Hubermanns’ basement in the The Book Thief, the narrator’s morbid imagination in The Raven). We will engage in a variety of activities to help you play god and brainstorm blueprints of your own worlds, large and small, and we will discuss how the rules of our lives translate into fictional experiences, interactions, and relationships. You will have the chance to begin a piece of written artwork -- an idea, a story, a poem, lyrics, screenplay, storyboard (literally anything!) -- that delves deeper into one of your realms.

H6775: Bad Guy for a Day in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
We read all about the "good guys," the heroes and heroines, and the world-savers. In this writing workshop, we'll focus on the character development of those who are big-time screw-ups, superheros' headaches, and the opposite of perfect. With the help of some unique writing prompts, we'll create and share stories from their perspectives and (probably) end up wishing we could tag along on their adventures.
