I recommend pursuing an English degree at Wheaton College. The professors are willing to engage with students both within and outside of class. The Writing Center, where I worked as a student, provides help at all stages of the paper-writing process. The classes are interesting and rigorous. Wheaton College has a strong English program. The only downside to the Writing degree is that not enough classes focused on writing, as opposed to literature, were required.
