“I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the Heart’s affections and the truth of the Imagination.” -John Keats
Writing is a process of thought–an idea that largely inspired this blog. It’s a vehicle for observing and understanding our thoughts and the world around us. I think, more than anything, that’s what I love about it. In both engaging in language and creating it, we develop and deeper understanding of ourselves and the shared experiences of others.
My name is Katy Goodman. I’m a writer and educator with a B.A. in English Literature and Psychology and M.A. in Rhetoric and Composition/Tech Comm. Previously, I was a public affairs wordcrafter for the Department of Homeland Security and a writing teacher at Auburn University and the College of Charleston. Now I’m a freelance writer and vehement high school English teacher who focuses on composition, language, media rhetoric, nature/conservation, life, and the processes that stem from all of these things. I also am heavily involved in naturalism and wildlife rehabilitation, have a cat who may be a Red Panda, and have started drafting a book as a hopeful side project.
This blog is a culmination of personal and professional portfolios that follow multiple passions, musings, and academic research: video games, psychology, nature, books, words, communication, education, language, growth, and life. Peruse at your own risk. 🙂
