So, I just got the go-ahead from the graduate English program to submit an application (They said they'd be very excited for me to apply! yay!) but they suggested I write a paper to showcase where my writing is at now.
Only problem is that I've spent the last 7 years teaching students how to write essays on Lord of the Flies instead of writing my own papers. So, y'all are smart. Assign me a 400-level English paper topic. I need to figure it out and start researching and shit, because the application is due in 2 months, and I, you know, still have to work and do stuff between now and then.
Areas that I focused on in my undergrad: Modernist poetry, Canadian Gothic Lit and West Coast Literature.
