My name is Laura Alexander and I'm a junior at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. I'm majoring in Literature with a concentration in Creative Writing and a Writing minor. I work at Stockton's Writing Center as a tutor and I'm an editor of our literary magazine, The Stockpot. I am very skilled in writing and editing, recently scored 100% on the state issues copy-editing test, and am knowledgeable in both Microsoft Word programs and a variety of online networking sites.
I currently have a 3.58 GPA and am expecting to graduate with my BA degree in May of 2012. I have taken a large amount of courses in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry and recently had the pleasure of teaching poetry to a group of incarcerated young men as a Work Study project. I have taken beginner courses in advertising, screenwriting, and a tutor practicum course. In addition to this, I have won several writing contests and been recognized for poetry, fiction, and especially nonfiction. I am currently hoping to put my skills and knowledge to use while gaining experience in the work world.
