Welcome to my e-portfolio! My name is Paige Van Kampen (PVK) and I’m a Senior at the University of Michigan. I am concentrating in English, but I just couldn’t get enough writing so I joined the Minor in Writing! I am from Holland, MI, and yes I am 100% Dutch. I am Co-Director of Camp Kesem Michigan, a nonprofit weeklong summer camp that is free for kids who have a parent that has or has had cancer. I did the New England Literature Program in the Spring of 2012, and between these two things I realized that my passion for writing spreads across many genres. As much as I love being creative and personal with my writing, as you will see in my formal assignments for Writing 220 at the top of the page, I also love professional writing such as grants, applications, etc. I will be adding more examples of the professional writing at a later time, but I hope you enjoy my formal writing assignments for the time being! Thank you for taking the time to take a peek at my writing portfolio.
