"Azul" is a short poem I originally wrote for a Creative Writing: Poetry class I took while studying in Budapest, Hungary. As the assignment was to write a dramatic monologue, I decided to play with the traditional elements of the genre by telling the story of a Mexican migrant worker. "Azul" will be a part of [the spaces between], an exhibit at Calvin College meant to address issues of racism.

"A Strange Sort of Monster" is a short monologue I wrote for my Writing for the Media class. Told from the perspective of a girl at her grandfather's funeral, "A Strange Sort of Monster" is a story of understanding and reconciliation after death.

About Me:
Well, hello there. My name is Abby Koning, and I'm a senior at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Although I do not have much experience with freelance work, I am hoping to pursue freelance writing. Currently, I am studying Stories and Development, an interdisciplinary major of my own creation that attempts to combine my passions for writing, literature, stories, international development, and social justice. I am an avid reader who enjoys writing creatively, professionally, and academically. My literary and grammatical instincts are well developed, and I am a skilled proofreader. I hope that you will consider me for your writing project, despite my regrettably limited experience. Please, give an aspiring young writer a chance to grow.
