Dear English Major Blog
Thank you for your interest in DearEnglishMajor.com!
My name is Alyssa W. Christensen and I’m the creator and English major behind the blog. After graduating from college, I had no idea what kind of career I wanted to pursue. (Not only did I attend a liberal arts school, but my emphasis was in creative writing, specifically poetry, which didn't exactly set me up on a lucrative career track.) My idea of what I could do with an English major was limited, and even after an internship at a publishing company, I still felt like my options were few and far between. But after some serious searching, countless cover letters, my first couple of jobs and diving into the world of freelancing, I learned that there are a ton of options out there for us wordsmiths!
My goal is for DearEnglishMajor.com to be a place for current or recently graduated English students to gain knowledge and a sense of direction regarding their careers. A big part of this includes featuring stories from people who are pursuing writing and editing careers, no matter the shape or form.
