Kenneth Otani graduated with a B.A. in English and Creative Writing from Central Michigan University (CMU) in Fall 2015. He is currently pursuing his MA degree while working as a graduate assistant at CMU’s writing center. Some of his favorite pastimes include reading, writing, and reading some more. Basically everything you’d expect from a literature-addicted river troll. Between bouts of coffee-fueled fever dreams, he also enjoys playing video games. Writing has been his first great passion in life, and although it can become stressful at times finding the best synonym or creating the perfect sentence structure, he can’t imagine anything else he’d rather be doing.
