About

My name’s Caleb Vierkant. I’m a writer. Well, I’m lots of things. I’m a student, a Christian, a ginger, a dog owner, a journalist, and a history buff, but I count being a writer near the top of the list of things that I am. It’s a big passion of mine, and whether it’s a short story, a novel, or a news article about a cat up a tree, I love to write.

This is a portfolio I’ve created to store my writing all in one place.  Here, you’ll find articles, research papers for school, and possibly a few short stories or other creative excerpts I’ve written.  This portfolio is not only meant to store my writings in one place, I also plan to use it to demonstrate how my skills (hopefully) improve over time.

Oh, also, please find below my resume. Hope you enjoy!
