You can write right--Not just formally and academically but creatively and uniquely.

Methodology

We all learn best by doing. You can only learn to write by writing, whether fiction, creative non-fiction, essays or term papers.
We all learn best learning with others. Whether it is a one-on-one with an instructor or in a small group, we all learn best through interaction with others. I believe in workshopping.

Background

I am an adjunct composition instructor at UWA. I teach EH 099, EH 101 and EH 102.
I have an MA in fiction, an MFA in creative writing.
I have a PhD in the humanities, religion.
I am a thesis and dissertation reader at NCTS.
