Elijah

Greetings! My name is Elijah (he/him) and I’m a 3rd year Illustration major. I’m originally from the United States, currently living in Vancouver on the unceded and ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh people. I feel really lucky to be able to study at Emily Carr among such a thoughtful and creative group of people.

In my spare time I like to journal, write poetry, create characters, and worldbuild. Primarily my writing practice concerns story-telling, mythography, and interactive fiction. I’m a *huge* fan of role-playing games. Some of my favorite games include The Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Pathologic, Dishonored, and Disco Elysium. I’m an experienced dungeon master as well! I believe any piece of writing can be made to tell an interesting story, and I’m really invested in getting people excited about writing and celebrating a passion for the written word.

I’m able to assist with both academic and creative writing — as well as any melding of the two!
Even just talking about writing is one of my favorite things to do, and I’m really looking forward
to the future.
