Anthem: A Reflection On Goodness And What It Means To Be Catholic, Alyx Staiano 2017 University of Wyoming

Anthem: A Reflection On Goodness And What It Means To Be Catholic, Alyx Staiano

Honors Theses AY 16/17

This project is a non-fiction creative writing piece that involves my struggle to define the meaning of being “good” and to ultimately find peace in the way that I practice my Catholic religion. The research included many autobiographies of religious figures and a guide to writing personal essays. These books showed me how others have approached this topic in the past and gave me guidance in how to format this personal essay. The non-fiction personal essay genre includes the elements of a conversational tone, honesty, and self-discovery. I used these elements in telling my story to express my struggles in ...


Highway 11: A Memoir, Judy Benowitz 2017 Kennesaw State University

Highway 11: A Memoir, Judy Benowitz

Master of Arts in Professional Writing Capstones

When my sister, Valerie, committed suicide, I looked back to the choices we made and wrote this book. Highway 11 is the title of my 60,000 word memoir.

My first stop was Atlanta, in 1969, for the “Age of Aquarius,” where I was ...

Dance, Er, Ethan Alexander Munson 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Dance, Er, Ethan Alexander Munson

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

Dancer, Er, by E. Alexander Munson, is a personal account of an extraordinary journey through names and how we find home within them; the narrator struggles with his identity as family, language, asthma, hero arches, hero complexes, and dreams that turn into nightmares, all spiral together to create an unparalleled trip through the social and reclusive construction of this Wanna-be-Wolf, and/or the collective unconscious run rampant. There remains a question as to whether the dreams described have been random manifestations of the ego or messages from something more on the spiritual side of things. But as the narrator explores ...
