This page describes your ethos as a writer. What background and experiences do you bring to your writing? Does your course work or major have relevance to your ethos? Do your experiences in the arts and humanities, in business, or in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics add ethos? Do jobs, internships, or volunteer positions help to create ethos? What else would help to build your ethos as a writer?
