“Quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit.”

Constance Bougie (he/they) has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the University of Missouri. He is currently a graduate instructor (with focuses in asexual and aromantic studies, composition studies, and multimodal + neuro/queer rhetorics) at Illinois State University.

When they were in high school, Constance had a prose piece published on Creepypasta.com, mostly so they could impress a boy–it can be found here, and has been described by the Internet as “decent,” “[a]ctually pretty well done,” not “very good,” and “0/10” due to “inconsistencies and lack of believability.” This is likely his most widely-read work, a fact they don’t particularly mind.
