Meet Abby Simard from Farmington, Connecticut! Abby has loved writing for as long as she can remember, and after taking some creative writing classes and getting to know the department here at GW, she couldn’t imagine majoring in anything else!
Abby is currently working on her Creative Writing Honors Thesis in short fiction, which consists of a series of short stories that follow pivotal moments in the lives of three generations of women. When asked about cool classes that she is taking this semester, Abby responded, “I’m really enjoying Professor Annie Liontas’ Advanced Fiction course this semester! A lot of us have been in other classes together, so it’s been fun to read everyone’s work and see how much we have improved.”
After graduating, Abby will be pursuing a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Sciences at Indiana University. She will also be using any free time she has to continue writing!
