As an English major seeking to emphasize in creative writing, I am immensely glad that I had the opportunity to listen to such inspiring and well-written narratives. I feel even more appreciative of writing as an art form, and more convinced of the power of words. None of the essays presented directly addressed the use of language within literature, but it was easy to see the influencing effect of using language deliberately. For my essay, it will be important to keep in mind that how I say something is just as important as what I'm saying.
