Creative Writing Major || Game Development Programming Minor
Hi there! As you might guess from the title of this WordPress, my name is Carissa Annalise. I am currently attending my third year at Chapman University and will be graduating in Spring 2018.
As for the future, my dream job is narrative writing for video games. I also would like to write and publish short pieces and novels in my spare time.
The constant question I get as a creative writer is: what genre do I work in? To answer as straightforward as possible, I write primarily fiction and am particularly interested in fantasy and sci-fi stories. However, I love to play around in whatever I can think of and am open to multiple genres of storytelling.
As a writer, I believe that I have a responsibility to represent many diverse, unique voices. For this reason, many of my works deal with sexual orientation, as well as mental illness, as I can draw from personal experience. This, of course, is only the beginning as I hope to explore and inform myself more about other communities that deserve to be seen more in media.
