Writers of Mason: Sarah Fischer

Sarah Fischer

“If you had to describe your idea for a paper to me in 3-5 sentences, and you could only use 3-5 sentences, what would it be? That exercise is really helpful because people start writing down sentences, and then they think, ‘Oh wait, I only have 3-5 sentences,’ and then they think, ‘I shouldn’t use this sentence because this really isn’t important to my idea.'”
