My name is Emily Carpenter. I am from Myrtle Point, Oregon. I have lived in Oregon all my life, and I love it. Though I am a journalism student, I really want to editor write books. I am not sure what genre I would work with but I know I prefer longer form writing. Since so much of the work we do in the journalism school is brief writing, videography, or photography, which are all great, I am also planning to do a creative writing minor. I hope creative writing will help me narrow my focus a little. When I’m not doing homework, I like to read, run, and participate in activities with my church group.
