Hello! My name is Amber Peckham. I am currently working toward my Masters in Creative Writing (Nonfiction) at Northwestern University in Chicago. I completed an undergraduate degree in creative writing/philosophy in 2009 at DePauw University. During my time at DePauw I wrote for our campus newspaper and received an award from the Indiana Society of Professional Journalists for my feature article 'DePauw Inked', a piece about the tattoo culture on campus. I was also lucky enough to complete an internship at the San Francisco Bay Guardian, an independent newspaper in the Bay Area. At the BG I was a culture intern, so I wrote articles about events and products. I did several blog entries a week and also produced some food reviews and longer articles/interviews for print. I am a fast, driven writer with a sharp sense of humor. I hope we can work together!
