Courtney Castor

Year, major(s)/minor(s):

Senior (graduating December 2015); English major, creative writing minor.

What’s the last book you read for fun?

Currently reading Bedside Manners by Phoebe Fox.

 Coffee or tea?

Coffee. Any way. All the time.

 If you could be any literary character for a day, who would you be and why?

Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden. Aside from the fact that she has discovered and planted her own secret garden (seriously, how cool is that?), she lives in a super cool time period in a crazy awesome manor that she explores all the time with her best friends, Colin and Dickon.

 Quote to live by:

“Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.” – Dalai Lama XIV

 Plans after you graduate:

I would love to continue writing after graduation and pursue a job in publishing/editing. Before settling into a career, though, I look forward to traveling – currently planning a backpacking trip through Europe next summer.
