nDash Writer Profile for Lasantha Rodtrigo


A Writer for All Seasons

About Me

I am a published writer with my writing appearing in journals and magazines such as SNReview, Dark Matter, Waldorf Literary Review, Euphemism, etc. I earned my Ph.D. in English Studies (Creative Writing track) in 2014, and prior to that, I earned two master’s degrees in American Literature and English respectively.

The areas of writing I engage in are diverse and numerous: academic essays and articles, promotional/advertising material, poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, magazine articles, interviews, etc. Prior to my academic journey, I worked as a copy-based Creative Director at a small advertising agency.

I take my writing very seriously and pay meticulous attention to grammatical and stylistic accuracy. I am deadline-driven, honest, and dependable. I do my best to work within your budget.
