Q. What are you anticipating most about your job at UW-Superior?

A. Most of all, I am looking forward to working with UW-Superior students with a wide range of majors, backgrounds, and interests.  I'm excited about the variety of perspectives they'll bring to the writing classroom.

Q. What's your favorite topic to teach?

A. As a writer of prose poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, I love to teach classes in the writing craft and creative writing to students who are enthusiastic about literature and eager to develop as poets, novelists, and essayists. However, I also enjoy helping students with a range of majors and goals to develop the writing skills they will need to succeed in their fields -- the practical, "applied" side of writing. I can honestly say I enjoy working with "reluctant" writers as much as enthusiastic ones.

Q. What message do you have for your students?

A.  Improve your writing to improve your thinking. Strong writing and critical thinking skills will help you in any career and with any life goal. Consider writing courses at UW-Superior as an essential (and hopefully enjoyable) part of your education!
