Margaret’s project is a literary portfolio in the form of a blog, which showcases a wide variety of skills she has acquired as a writer over the course of the semester. The blog contains multiple pieces, including a fictional story, an article on how The Forks is making changes to become more environmentally sustainable, and a reflection on her school trip to Ecuador. Though the fictional piece was originally supposed to be a short story, Margaret quickly realized that the story was bigger than that. Her attention shifted to plotting out a rough story outline, and that piece is something she will continue to work on after Propel.
Margaret has also written a review for a book, a movie, and a television show in which she identified and studied specific literary concepts such as character development, writing style, and world-building. All of these writing pieces are accessible to the public through her blog.
