We have reached the end of the semester, and I am currently looking over my revisions of our final portfolio for any silly mistakes. I was able to have a blast in Professor Jakiela's class. I learned so much about the industry, especially the literary scene in Pittsburgh. She's helped me realize that to start my career as a writer, I must do it in Pittsburgh. The assignments pushed me to unbelievable situations and took me out of my comfort zone, yeez louise I was able to score an interview with Yona Harvey!
After this class, I hope to research better literary journals and places where my interests and form of writing align. I think I also want to develop my skill of writing about my experiences, my identity, and how politics does or doesn't involve me.
