Journal of Creative Writing Studies
One of the primary goals of the field of creative writing studies is to examine creative writing lore. Lore is anecdotal knowledge, often passed down through generations as informal advice and traditional knowledge that is often framed as appealing to our common sense. Lore is not necessarily wrong or bad; indeed, it usually has more than a grain of truth to it, which is why it survives and continues to be shared, like a folk remedy for the common cold.

Master of Fine Arts in Professional Writing Theses
Hell and High Water: Prophecy is a young adult fantasy novel exploring how age and status affects one’s effect on the world. Following the story lines of three, interconnecting characters, this novel aims to challenge the notion that only those with wisdom and power can influence the world and the events that take place in it. Meant to be an anti-prophecy novel, Hell and High Water: Prophecy will strive to prove that the “chosen one” is not the only character in a book that can save the world.

This thesis is a narrative of personal and material history. Through my work in painting, sculpture, and installation, I seek to share my story of emotional armoring in an attempt to connect to an audience. In my work, I look to my personal memories of growing up in a small, midwestern town and armoring myself with emotional barriers against its social construct of “normalcy.” Inspired by Medieval suits of armor and the characteristics of Goth culture throughout history, I employ my work to present the stage of a theatrical battleground. Creating each of my pieces is a fight for the ...

Growing Brave: A Feminist Short Story Inspired By Myth, Folklore, And Fairy Tales, Celia Egghart
Honors Theses AY 17/18
Fairy tales are often deemed as nothing more than “children’s stories” or “old wives’ tales.” With this ideology, stories that are seen as “childlike” or “feminine” are somehow labeled as unimportant or silly. However, these tales, as well as their adaptations, are anything but frivolous and trivial. Fairy tales have the unique power to reflect or change the cultural values of a people and era through their morals and lessons. With this project, I will examine this genre of creative writing and rework classic stories from a feminist perspective to reflect the issues and values of the 21st ...
