I actually found out about Emerson from a thread on this site, and when I looked into it further, found that Emerson caters to my passion (writing) and provides pretty much everything I have been searching for in a school. I was wondering if anyone has knowledge of or experience with the writing, literature, and publishing facet of the school. How is it? Any info from a student, alum, or parent would be appreciated.
Also- chance me please!

-EC's have been somewhat disjointed as per all of the moving, but I have tennis, volunteering, and (unfortunately brief) leadership positions such as creative writing club president (although maybe I can use the "short-lived" aspect to my advantage.
