I once pretended that I was the daughter of a coffee shop employee because I wanted a discounted bagel, I'll do the same for feedback.

PROMPT: Personal Essay Competition: Making Change

She leans against the side of the Brooklyn Bridge.  Golden hour sunlight reflects off the bronze of her hair, painting her pale pink cheeks with just a little bit more color.  She takes a drag of a half gone cigarette, pausing mid-inhale, only to throw it into the ocean below. She’s a struggling artist/interpretive dancer/lost soul with a trust fund.

There are only so many movies about quirky white girls living in Brooklyn that I can handle.  They’re fun for...

Five Endings

PROMPT: Five Endings

There were a lot of reasons why this should have been easier.

She got him when she was sixteen.  He was small. Full of energy. He pressed his head into her palm anytime she even hinted at petting him.  He was her little angel. God’s blessing. She took him out on walks. Padding through rose gardens and lounging in coffee shops, leaving him outside as she ran into a Sephora or had a quick look around the Urban Outfitters.  They...

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

Adolescence had a scent.  A scent of impropriety and impressionability, of the desire to be unique enough to fit in, of contradiction.  I stood alone.  Around me, Doc Marten garbed photographers flirted with Creeper clad bassists.  Left minded skinheads smoked with young mature girls, sharing a stoge under a cracked outdoor porch light.  A couple sat on a swing set.

I held no feeling of love or adoration for romanticization.  I had been in a relationship with a boy whom...

The Problem with Non-Educators Creating Education Policy

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2017

  I want to say it started in third grade.  Mrs. Demerjian was teaching us our multiplication tables through timed tests where students had to complete 20 problems in 5 minutes.  This in itself is a flawed method of educating 9 year-olds, but there was only so much teachers could do with flawed (maybe not flawed, so much as rigid)  Common Core standards.  Mrs. Demerjian, in an effort to make math fun, added the incentive of ice cream to those who...

Finn Jean and the Framed

PROMPT: TV Pilot Competition 2017

A quote appears on screen. It reads: "Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination -Plato" It all fades to black.

INT. STUDIO - DAY 1
MCKAY, FINN, JASPER, LUCY, and RUNE sit on a couch facing the camera. Each one of them falls into a rock star stereotype, dressed in either tight leather or grungy flannel. They're in the midst of being interviewed. FINN adjusts his glasses.

FINN
