Hello, I’m Erin Nightingale

I’m a musician, a composer, a novelist, a poet, a book lover, an onomast . . . and I’m an English Major.

Really, I don’t know where I’d be without writing. I am blind, but when I was younger I could see better, and back then I considered myself an artist. I was constantly drawing, painting, and sculpting. I was fairly certain that art would be in my future. But I lost most of my sight when I was ten years old, and could no longer see to draw. Therefore, I had to find new ways of doing art. I taught myself how to play the piano, and have been composing music for eight years. But this wasn’t enough. Soon I discovered the world of words, and began writing poems and novels. I have six completed novels and over thirty poems to date. I’ve been told that my writing style is very colorful. Another one of my loves is teaching. I m studying currently to become an English teacher. It is in this way that art, in one form or another, has made it into my future, and will continue to be a vital part of what makes me me forever.

One of my favorite books is Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

Hello, I’m Abby Morse

I am a connoisseur of slapstick comedy, human folly, and dusty old books. And I’m an English major.

You know, just casually throwing a jacket over my shoulder in a field.

I was 10 years old when my mother handed me her copy of Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen (now one of my favorite authors) and that was when my love for literature began. I will gobble up anything from ancient Homer, to 19th century Bronte, to more contemporary C.S. Lewis. One of my favorite things to do is talk about novels, poems, or plays and compare all of their movie adaptations (of course the books are always better). I am beyond excited to be studying literature at BYU and to do it surrounded by my fellow enthusiasts!

One of my favorite books is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
