Lindsay Brents is a senior B.F.A Dance major and B.A. Creative Writing major with a minor in Chinese studies at Randolph College. She is currently Randolph's Writing Lab Tutor Supervisor and student assistant for the dance department. On top of all that, she’s the Treasurer of Creative Writing Club. This past fall, she directed the dance department’s annual student choreography showcase and choreographed two pieces for it. Currently, she is choreographing her senior dance piece and writing her senior English paper, both of which are due in their complete form on the same day.
She is additionally an avid seamstress and photographer, and she regularly takes on projects in both fields that she realistically shouldn’t have the time or energy to complete. Over her time at Randolph College, Lindsay has participated in National Novel Writing Month (write 50,000 words in the month of November) three times, continuing a tradition she began as a freshman in high school. This past summer, she decided that, considering her senior schedule, it might go poorly for her if she attempted this feat again. Instead, she did Camp NaNoWriMo (write 50,000 words in the month of July) and was pleasantly astonished to find that writing approximately 1,700 words per day is much easier to do without a full academic schedule.
