Description

For my submission to the conference, I will be reading a segment of “Protection” the short story I wrote in the fall semester of 2014 for Professor Theune’s Senior Writing Project. The story is composed of the correspondence between two brothers separated physically and emotionally by conflicts of love and war as they communicate with each other via email and messenger apps regarding the current events of their changing lives as well as those which took place before the beginning of the story. At the same time, the narrative moves backward in time to show readers parts of what happened in a pseudo love triangle to cause the initial drama between the two protagonists. This is an examination of the importance of the life changing decisions that people my age have to make at this time in our lives. It is a suspenseful novela geared toward examining colloquial dialogue between members of our generation at casual and dramatic moments.
