Natalie Kopp is an MA/PhD student in RCL and literature. Her current research interests include community writing, working-class literacy movements from the Victorian and contemporary periods and narrative. She is particularly interested in how economically-marginalized, resource-deprived and underrepresented writers can build grassroots writing communities and the needs these communities can serve.
Before graduate school, Natalie worked in Columbus as a higher education editor, community college writing consultant, and coordinator of a community college mentorship program for Pell-eligible and first-generation students. She's passionate about creating spaces in Columbus for writing, reading and learning inside and outside of the traditional classroom.
