Melissa is part of the 2014 graduating class from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. She is an English major with a concentration in literature and criticism with a minor in writing, rhetoric, and communications. The five pieces that Melissa has shared on this blog were written for her REMoir seminar and are based off of real events that have happened in her life. Some are mostly true, while others offer readers a glimpse into the twists and turns of her imagination.
Unfamiliar with many creative writing genres, REMoir was a new concept for Melissa and she enjoyed being able to turn events from her life into “what- if” scenarios. She hopes that her readers enjoy the stories that have emerged as result of this class over the past semester.
