Welcome!

Thanks for checking out my writing portfolio. Make yourself at home!

This website hosts a collection of my writing from my time as an undergraduate at the University of Michigan. I’ve included blog posts, rough drafts, and almost-final drafts to give you a glimpse into what I write, how I write, and why I write.

In compiling this collection of my writing, I went through files I haven’t touched since fall 2008. It’s amazing to see the progress I’ve made since my freshman year. Putting together this portfolio gave me an idea as to how much I’ve grown as a writer and areas in which I still want to improve.¬†Pieces from my earlier years can be found on the left side of the menu bar. Move along to the right for more recent writings. See the Index¬†for a listing of which pieces meet the e-portfolio requirements.

I posted self-reflective comments and author’s notes at the beginning of each piece to explain to you what the assignment was, what was going on in my head, and what I liked and didn’t like about the piece.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments–I’d love to hear what you have to say!

–Mark
