imageMy name is Chloe Gilligan and I am a freshman tuba performance major at the University of Kansas with a minor in creative writing. I have been composing stories and poems since I was a child, and have a deep love of language that has stuck with me. Rhyming verse has always come naturally to me, and I most enjoy analyzing the interplay between music and words, be it phrasing, consonance, or general feel. It is my desire to become a librettist so that I can finally put these things together, and share my art. My poetry has been published, read, and displayed throughout school and have been writing stories in a fiction writing class all semester, receiving significant praise for my artistic and lyrical style as well as my incorporated musical motifs.
