Get to know our wonderful staff working on The Bridge vol. 19. We asked Grace a couple of questions, keep reading to find out more!
Grace is working on the editorial side of this years journal. She is a junior here at Bridgewater State, and is majoring in English with a concentration in the Writing Studies, as well as minoring in Biology.
What is class you have taken in your field that you really liked?
One class that I really loved was writing about literature. This class covered all my favorite genres to read including poetry, fictions and plays. The variety and diversity of stories enabled me to learn a lot and develop a solid foundation of literature.
What’s one piece of advice you could give to someone wanting to submit in the journal?
I would say to go for it! There is always a possibility that your work will be selected. It is an amazing opportunity to get experience with the publishing process. I would like to encourage anyone that wants to show their work to do it. We would love for you to share a piece something that you are proud of and love because the editors and readers of the journal will share those same feelings.
What’s your dream job?
I would love to open a bookstore café. In this café I would have all sorts of freshly bakes pastries that I’ve baked myself and delicious expresso and coffee to drink while flipping through some books. I would love to spend my days working in a place that is full of my favorite things, good books, good food, and good coffee.
