I picked a class called Transgressive Writing. [It] changed the way I wrote, it changed how I was looking at myself as an artist… When I was thinking about coming back to school, I’d already been to film school and art school and had some writing background. Through the Creative Writing concentration, I found my voice as a writer. Once that happened, I got really confident in what I was doing. That was such a phenomenal feeling. I was astounded by how singular I could be, and at the same time, affect and touch other people through my work.
