My name is Alissa Knop and I am one of the new editors for the I Love to Write website and blog. I am currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh majoring in journalism and minoring in creative writing. I work at the University’s Writing Center, helping writers to improve their writing and working with all kinds of students, including those with learning disabilities and who are learning English as a second language. I also work as the Copy Chief at the student newspaper The Advance-Titan. I really enjoy working in both of these jobs because I get to improve in the professional and creative sense while working with other students to gain all kinds of experience in my favorite thing to do: Write!
On this blog, I will be giving tips to young writers on general writing, grammar, and planning your book or story. This will include quotes and advice from famous authors, knowledge from my own experience at the Writing Center, and much more. Happy Writing!
