Meet the Cupid Associates: Mags Bryant

Hey there!

My name is Mags Bryant and I am a junior English major with a double concentration in Creative Writing and Professional Writing and Rhetoric. Recently I returned to Elon after spending the fall semester abroad in Ireland studying English at Trinity College Dublin. Although I miss the Emerald Isle terribly, I am really excited to have the opportunity to be a CUPID Associate for the spring semester!

My double concentration and coursework have taught me to view writing (whether it’s creative or professional) in a universally applicable way. I love that as a writer I am challenged and often required to apply my craft in a variety of rhetorical situations. In addition to being a CUPID Associate, I am also a Writing Center Consultant and a Co-Fiction Editor for Elon’s Literary Magazine, Colonnades. As a result of TA-ing Dr. Strickland’s Beat Generation Literature winter term course, I am now conducting undergraduate research on Beat Generation Literature and in part addressing how we approach it in academia and the relevance of the Beats today. I also have interned as a grant writer for Uwharrie Charter Academy in Asheboro, NC and really enjoy travel writing.

Through PWR, I have learned the importance of effective communication and persuasion as well as the value of collaboration. With that in mind,  I am really looking forward to the experience of being an associate this semester and I can’t wait to help you with all things PWR.  You can find me in the CUPID Studio (Alamance 318) every Wednesday from 5:30pm-7:00pm! Hope to see you there!
