Writings about Our Fictitious Patron Saint, Hermione

The Catholic Church does have a saint named Hermione. She was a physician and martyr who lived in Caesarea in the first century A.D.. The Catholic Church’s St. Hermione is not, however, the University Writing Center’s St. Hermione. Please note that all the writings listed below refer to a completely fictitious patron saint of writing consultants and writing utensils. Conjured from the creative minds of our student consultants, our St. Hermione provides us with an example of what a great consultant should be as well as our very own phony holiday to honor her.
