Creative Writing Editor
Amanda Weber, a recent graduate of East Ridge High School and incoming freshman at Grinnell College, is Orca Tribe’s Creative Writing Editor. Amanda enjoys writing short stories and novels. She describes her writing style as vaguely ironic and filled with dry humor. Her greatest literary influence is F. Scott Fitzgerald and her favorite works include Tender is the Night, The Great Gatsby, and A Gentleman in Moscow. Amanda hopes to pursue a career in which she can use her writing skills, but says she will continue to write as a hobby regardless of her profession.
