About Merriya

Hello!

My name is Merriya, and I'm a graduate of SUNY Oswego, where I received my degree in Creative Writing and English. Reading and writing are essential with most aspects of day to day living; it's my wish to help maximize these skills.

I am a freelance writer trying to get published, as well as a blogger and avid social media user. While in school I was a Writing Office Assistant as well as an assistant in the Office of Learning Services, which was the school's tutoring program. I am very familiar with tutoring and what is required to have an excellent tutor/tutee experience.

Though I am not a horrid grammar troll like those who run rampant all over the internet, I do make it a point to try and be as seamless with my writing as possible. Mistakes are mistakes however, and mistakes can be corrected. We can also learn from them, which I think is vital. Pointing out what has been done wrong and saying, "Change this," is simply not enough. Explaining why it's wrong and how to remember it's wrong are also important.

I want to assist in making it more difficult (not difficulter) to feed the trolls, but sometimes it's hilarious to use the wrong 'there' and watch the impending melt down.
