My name is Faiza Ikram and I am a freelance writer and blogger. I recently received a Bachelor’s degree in English from Elmhurst College. This fall, I will be starting my Master of Arts in Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse at DePaul University.

I started this blog to help student writers and student journalists. At Elmhurst College, I was a writer and news editor at the student-run newspaper. I was also a writing tutor at Elmhurst College’s Writing Center for a year and a half.

I saw a need for student writers and journalists to gain accessible, easy-to-read, and brief tips on improving their writing whether it be academic, professional, or news writing. I saw students struggling when writing research papers or essays, and I experienced and then later observed the difficulty of switching from academic writing to news writing when working on a student newspaper.

This blog consists of advice, tips, and instruction on topics such as starting a college research paper or essay or writing a news article.

Although I have professional and academic experiences within the writing field, I am not an expert. I still consider myself a student of writing. However, the information on this blog consists of what I learned in my classes, learned from work experiences, or read from books on writing.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post in the comments section or send me a message!

Thank you.
