Creative Nonfiction:

For my English honors thesis, I undertook a New Journalism study of homosexuality in the Midwest, and the unique challenges that gay men faced. After extensive interviews, I retold their stories in prose, with every word backed by what they shared with me. I’m hoping to continue this project at a later date.
