Abigail Grammerie

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2020

     They named her Abigail Grammerie. They looked at the culmination of decades of toil in the glorious glass. Her fair skin was smooth, with lean arm muscles. Her face was beautiful, yet so cold, because she was inhumane. Her skin was actually donated skin cells, and everything, from her toenails to her eyelashes, were articulately placed. The wiring that held her together was hidden beneath her charming irises. Her brain was made of artificial intelligence tissue that enabled her to...

Do Celebrities Deserve Privacy?

FREE WRITING

Some are known for their singing, some are Hollywood royalty, some are celebrities for no apparent reason: in the 21st century, celebrities are a dominant presence in today’s pop culture. The mass culture heavily influenced by celebrities has been correlated with the rise of the internet and social media, which has interconnected people more than ever before. In the 21st century, it is important that we reaffirm that celebrities are fundamentally human beings and members of society, which means they...

Face to Face Human Interaction

FREE WRITING

Americans are steadily attending public, community events in person events less and less. Is this a symptom of a broader cultural pattern in our society? Or do people still value connections across communities in the public arena? The fact is, the majority of people prefer to attend public events, making our commitment to its cultural worth consistent. People everywhere still value community, just like thousands of years of human history. 
First, I’d like to point out that some public events...

High Schools and Vocational Education

FREE WRITING

   Vocational training has been a cultural institution for centuries. For example, Booker T. Washington, a prominent black leader in the 18th century, advocated that more African Americans should turn to these skilled-based jobs to progress in society. However, public high schools now feature fewer of these specialized classes. This is a positive development in our educational system because it will allow students to build fundamental skills they will need to function later in life by focusing on the core...

My Favorite Historical Site

FREE WRITING

This is why visiting the Lincoln Memorial was so momentous for me: it is an American icon and site of heritage that honors our very special 16th president. The inscription of the Gettysburg Address shows that not only did Lincoln rally the Union’s cause, but that the “dead did not die in vain”. He offered hope for future American citizens, regardless of race and ethnicity, characterizing this occasion as a “new birth of freedom” guided by “a government of the...

Teen Girls and the Daily Struggle

PROMPT: Food Writing Competition 2020

    Food is a cathartic, painful process for many. For the vast amount of modern American teenagers, especially girls, eating disorders present a terrible and heavily stigmatized reality in their lives. For them, it is a daily struggle to be satisfied with what they eat. For these vulnerable young girls, food is a something of a sin, something that needs to be purged because of the constant bombardment of unrealistic body expectations from the media. As a 17 year old female...
