My Beloved Portfolio

So this semester I had the pleasure of taking a Creative Nonfiction Writing class. This was by far my favorite class of the semester, yes I liked this even more than my Jane Austen/Virginia Woolf class.

Anyway the point of this is to show off my final portfolio. This is 75 pages of my best writing in the class this semester. It includes three larger projects including a memoir, (Libby once read somewhere that you should never read a memoir written by someone younger than 30, but I was required to do this), a Portrait/Biography which I wrote on my Great-Grandpa Jess Williams (all you Williams should learn more about him he was an awesome guy, I'll post my essay on the family blog so you can all read it), and an Essay of Place which I wrote about my road trip to Alaska with Libby and Audra.
My final Portfolio was a lot of work, and it is my pride and joy for the semester, and I just wanted to brag about what I did.

This is me sighing because I finally finished it!

I agree with Anisa! And, I really, really, really want to see it! Since I'm in it. :) Well, even though people shouldn't read a memoir of someone under 30 I'm still all about it.

I'm so jealous. I've always wanted to take a creative non-fiction class, and it sounds like you did some really fun writing assignments. You'll have to show them to me next time I visit.
