Junior Creative Writing Major

I was inspired to join the staff of Elan before I even came to Douglas Anderson. In my last year of middle school, I researched everything I could find about DA, and I stumbled upon Elan. Reading the work included in it really inspired me, and made me think that pursuing writing was really valid option. It was amazing to find out that other people took writing so seriously, and really cared about the craft. I want to inspire others in the same way that I was inspired.
