    Andrew is a graduate student in Hamline’s MFA in creative writing program. He is at the midpoint of his second year in the program and is fast approaching thesis and all the work that accompanies that particular condition. He has had experience writing analytical papers (mainly for English courses), but he has been known to pen the odd research paper as well. He enjoys working with punctual students who know how to use spellcheck but also understand that it’s no substitute for reading the written work out loud.
