Hello, hello!! My name is Hope, and I come from a small coastal town in Maine, similar to the one that you may find yourself in now. I originally came to the College of the Atlantic intending to study marine science, conservation, and ecology; however, I have found myself drawn to the world of literature, science communication, psychology, and audio production. Writing has always been a passion of mine, as I find writing to be an extension of one’s inner world brought to the outer. Writing can seem daunting to this fact, but I seek to help others find comfort within the discomfort of writing. I am here to help with any part of the writing process and/or writing and to help find what works for you as a writer. And in the words of Maine author Stephen King, “As a writer, try any goddam thing you like, no matter how boringly normal or outrageous. If it works, fine. If it doesn’t, toss it.”
