In all the creative writing classes I have participated in, the instructors served as a facilitator and guide; they shared their knowledge and background in order to inform us and broaden our experience. As a whole, students and instructor, we created our own community of writers. I lead my writing classes with this same spirit. Together, we will create an interactive, supportive, and safe community. We will respect the diverse voices and experiences of everyone who attends, learn from each other, share our ideas and creative spirits, and inspire and encourage one another to grow as writers. For me, this is what working with a group is all about. Writing is the central focus of all the writing courses I instruct. The format of my writing courses consists of discussion, peer workshops, readings by diverse authors, presentations on strategies for writing, and in-class writing exercises.
