My name is Victoria Rose Phelps. At least, that’s how I sign papers. Everyone calls me Tori, but I don’t like the way the “T” looks in cursive.

I’m currently pursuing a literature major with a double minor in history and creative writing at Saginaw Valley State University. I hope to later pursue a master’s in Library Science. As of right now, I enjoy reading fantasy, science fiction, realistic fiction, historical fiction, and Victorian literature. I write mostly new Gothic short stories and flash, though I am starting to dabble in creative nonfiction. I also write for my college newspaper.

This blog exists to establish my name and give my signature meaning.

  1. You go, girl. Make sure you have good copies of everything you get published: your “tear sheets”. Articles in your school paper count. When u send a query you’ll need those as proof. Enter every contest u can. Go, tori.


    • Thank you! I have a pretty good collection of all things newspaper right now; I’m hoping to add more variety in the forms of literary journals and contests soon. Thanks for the advice! I didn’t know I’d need these as proof in a query. 🙂
