Dear fellow writers,
My personal coaching and teaching experience with writers goes back to the late eighties and nineties at Illinois State University and at SUNY Brockport, where I took a Masters in English, Writing concentration. Recently, I’ve graduated from the AULA MFA in Creative Writing Program. Along the way I’ve managed to publish a few things, but my greatest satisfaction comes from working with other writers — just like you. Whether your primary language has always been English, or was another language, my goal for you is to become excited about the page in front of you, not terrified. I want you to see your strengths and hear your voice grow stronger as you write.
Antioch is unique among colleges because of the high value we place on each student’s voice. I love being an emissary of that truth. Your classroom experience is where you begin, but when we write and think together, you get to have your say. You get to find out what truly matters to you and how you can actually make a difference in the world. That’s why I love this place. It begins with you.
