|Blurbarian Since||January 2010|
|Name||Laurel A. Williams|
|Location||IL, USA . . . for now.|
|My Occupation||Recent university graduate - I know, yikes!|
Laurel hails from a small IL town that is (yes, quite literally) referred to as a village.
As of June 2010, Laurel will have earned two degrees in English (BA) and Theater History/Literature/Criticism (BS) from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. She plans to eventually earn her MA and a PhD in English.
Laurel began using Blurb.com after being referred to it by her Theater adviser and mentor, Dr. Johanna Schmitz (PhD). Through using BookSmart®, Laurel created and completed her senior project:
Made You Look: The 2008 London Theatre Experience.
As of late, Laurel has been busily getting things in order to apply for jobs, preferrably in the fields of theater, writing, and/or publishing.
Thanks for stopping by!
