“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.”
Dawn Paul teaches writing, literature and interdisciplinary courses. She is also a faculty tutor in the Writing Studio. She is the author of two novels, The Country of Loneliness (Marick Press) and Still River (Corvid Press). Her short stories, creative nonfiction and poetry are included in the anthologies Only Connect (Cinnamon Press, Wales, UK); In the Eye (poetry to support the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina); and Going Alone—Solo Outdoor Adventures and Steady as She Goes—Women and the Sea, both published by Seal Press, New York. She has also written natural history and science articles for magazines and newspapers. Dawn has received writing fellowships from the Vermont Studio Center, the Ragdale Foundation, Spring Creek Project and Friday Harbor Marine Laboratories.
