Colleen C.

Polished writer and creative wordsmith
   United States
  |   Somerville, MA

Overview

I have a Bacherlor's degree in Slavic Languages and Literature from the University of Chicago, a college known for its publishing company and rigorous writing courses. Although trained to craft academicly persuasive arguements, I also write blogs for my side project business venture and other clients as time permits. I like to garnish my writing with a tad bit of wit when possible and plan to one day write a novel that will go unrecognized for its genius until after my tragic death.
