The Southerner

Oliver Hall
This is Oliver Hall’s second year as a staff writer for The Southerner. Hall loves writing both for the newspaper and his own pieces. The sophomore’s favorite type of story to write is news, because he feels that news stories allow him to participate in different events and learn more about the South community. Hall also enjoys writing fiction - particularly historical fiction or alternate universe. Hall enjoys writing because he feels it allows him to express his creative side. He is a part of South’s One Act Writing Club, which creates short pieces to be performed in the Black Box Theater.

Hall likes reading fiction as well as writing it. One of his favorite books is Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. He has loved this futuristic novel since his childhood. However, writing and reading aren’t all that Hall enjoys doing in his spare time. He is also an avid video game player. One of Hall’s favorite video games is Super Smash Bros. which tends to bring out his competitive side. He likes to attend tournaments with his friends and describes himself as a mid-level player.

Hall finds that newspaper allows him to be an individual and figure things out for himself. This year he hopes to get improve his writing, cover fun events, and meet interesting people.
