Lauren Benjamin is a third year Master’s Candidate in the English Department. She is currently working on a thesis exploring sensory perception (vis-à-vis the imagination and the fantastical) in the work of Polish-Jewish author Bruno Schulz. But she also likes normal stuff. Like bikes and bees. Being the Assistant Director of the SSU Writing Center is definitely one of the highlights of her life right now. She hopes that her strange jokes are at least somewhat amusing to someone somewhere.
