“Our students are storytellers, poets and creative thinkers. My work is to show them how to communicate their stories and ideas on the page. All writing is creative writing. Whether I am teaching composition or an interdisciplinary course or working with a student one-on-one in the Writing Studio, I am always excited to read my students’ work and help them clearly communicate what is on their minds.”
