There are many good writers here at Sartell. While some excel in writing papers, some students write stories, and others write poems.

Emily Callan is a senior this year. She favors writing in the form of poems. She does this as a way of expressing her feelings in an elegant way. She has started writing more frequently as of the end of last summer. 

Emily said the thing that makes her most drawn to poetry is that “It’s a more direct and raw outlet for how I’m feeling, which is kinda why I started writing in the first place.”

She made it clear that she prefers writing about things that she cares deeply for. “The easiest thing for me to write about is anything I’m passionate or emotional about, which usually is relationships I have with other people.”

She said her her favorite part about writing is the imagery you can paint using wisely selected words.”I find it really cool how specific you can get with words. Words can evoke a very specific feeling if worded correctly, and if you find the right word, it all fits perfectly.”

— Emily Callan

Emily writes as often as she can. “It differs how often I get the inspiration to write. Sometimes it’s every day for a week, and other times it’s once every month.” She finds that it is easier to get down to business in an environment that feels casual to her. “I usually write somewhere where I am comfortable. Mostly in my house, or coffee shops that I go to. I used to write at work too when I was closing and there weren’t very many customers.”

Emily then talked about what her hopes and plans were for her future writing. She responded: “I suppose that I hope that I grow as a writer. Anything further that can happen from there will only happen if I keep writing and working to become a better writer.”
