I am Rob Fox. I write and I teach. My work has been published in the NY Times, LA Weekly and many literary journals across the country. I write creative nonfiction essays and memoir pieces, fiction and poetry. My passion is teaching incarcerated youth how to write creatively in jail.
As a tutor and instructor, I love to watch you grow as a student. I will help you gain confidence in your writing skills. Writing is personal, whether composing an academic paper or a poem. I enjoy bringing out the very best in our students. Those who work with me know my mantra, “You know more than you think you know.” In my sessions, the paper is a canvas for you to paint your ideas, add structure and polish to a blinding shine.
I like to brain storm ideas from the beginning, build structure from the first draft, or polish the paper with the accessories of language. Rather than focus on arcane and confusing grammar rules, I want you to listen to the rhythm of your sentences, find the ebb and flow of ideas, read where the strength and weakness exist.
Most of all, I want your voice present in the piece. You have worked hard putting your ideas on the page, so let’s make sure your voice is there too.
