Greetings! Maggie Boggs here. I'm a passionate writer and a literary enthusiast. Quite recently, I graduated with honors from Kennesaw State University, where I earned my B.A. in English. During my time as an eager student of writing and literature, I penned a wide variety of pieces, ranging from research-conference-worthy scholarly work to witty and playful creative writing.
The composition and writing-intensive literature courses I had the privilege of taking at KSU have shaped me into a capable, versatile, and audience-receptive writer. Below, you will find a selection of my work, including academic essays, short stories, and personal narratives.
