Since 2016, I have taught college courses in creative writing, literature, and critical reading and writing, as well as workshops for the Clarion West Writing Workshop, Alpha Workshop, Wiscon, and Manhattanville Summer Writers Week. I want my students to understand writing as an infinitely malleable tool that can be wielded across disciplines and for all kinds of purposes. I believe that writing is a collaborative and community-oriented process, and I hope that my students leave my classroom or workshop empowered to pursue their curiosity and passion.
