Hello, I’m Meredith Cobb

I’m an aspiring novelist, a serious book addict, a Canadian, and a constant scribbler/doodler. And I’m an English major.

As a freshman, my enthusiasm for this major is matched only by my love for books – although the two might be connected. While packing away my childhood I realized just how much I’ve written and how I have dreamed my entire life about this career. I read a ridiculous amount. Half of what I read convinces me that I could write and half makes me cry in awe and humiliation. I love to review books and I participate in the National Novel Writing Month in November.

One of my favorite books is Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre

I am a bibliophile, a cartoonist, a biker and aspiring author. And I’m an English major.

All my life I have embraced language and literature as a second nature. (I was even chastised in elementary school for “reading too much.”) My love of stories has often inspired me to create my own stories, whether through novel-writing — especially¬†NaNoWriMo — or through my own crazy style of cartooning. I enjoy learning about and experiencing many subjects, including biology, music, history and biking, but I always turn back to the study of literature because it tells us so much about the human experience and empowers us to see meaning in the world.

One of my favorite books is Norton Juster’s The Phantom Tollbooth.

Adam is the official cartoonist for the English Society blog. Watch for his humorous art in posts to come…
