This portfolio is a collection of some of my poetry and creative nonfiction pieces, all of which I wrote during my time as an undergraduate at Cedarville University. A few of the pieces in this collection have appeared previously in other publications. Literary Yard featured my nonfiction piece “Four Passages” on their website in November of 2014. Blotterature Literary Magazine published my nonfiction piece “This Is More Than Homesickness” in Volume 2, Issue 1, of their Winter 2015 publication. Burning Word Literary Journal published my nonfiction piece “Sun Fungus” in May of 2015. Magnolia Review featured my nonfiction piece “Nine Months of Conflict Taught Me How to Say ‘No’” in Volume I, Issue 2, of their July 2015 publication. Referential Magazine published my poem “Behind the Second-Floor Dormer” in their September 2015 issue. Foliate Oak Literary Magazine published my poems “The Red Paint Grave,” “Perkins Cove Port, Ogunquit,” and “Nor’easter” in their November 2015 issue. Mount Hope featured “Silent Cider Mill” in Issue 9 of their Spring 2016 publication. The Albion Review accepted my poem “Ordinary Time” for their 2016 edition. The Cedarville Review accepted “Lever- Action” as well as “January in North Berwick” and “Remiges and Retrices” for their 2016 publication. This collection expresses what I learned through homesickness and interpersonal conflict—how I yearned for and cherished my home as I dealt with difficult circumstances.
