Mina Halling ’12 sent the English Department the following news and testimonial:
“First off, (a very abridged version of) my Departmental Honors project, ‘Adventures in Time, Space and Community College: Narrative Structure and Thematic Depth,’ has been featured in A Sense of Community: Essays on the Television Series and Its Fandom. Colin [Irvine] helped put me in contact with the editor of the collection over a year ago, and the book is finally ready to go. (And my essay is first! Exciting.)
“I also have a personal narrative piece, ‘Trivia Weekend: The Less Cool (but no less great) Minnesota Get-Together,’ that is about to be included in an e-book called Bright Lights, Twin Cities: A Collection of Stories from Real Minnesotans. Here’s a link for that one: http://thetangential.com/bright-lights-twin-cities/
“… I’m sharing this stuff with you as a delayed part of Thank A Teacher Day. I’d like to say a huge thank you to each of you for making me a better writer, editor, thinker and person. I feel like I’m making steps on the long path to Making A Living By Writing, which is pretty awesome, and it wouldn’t be happening if it weren’t for your influence.”
