My teaching is rooted in the memory of what it was to be a student. I try my best to honor my own excellent teachers by creating a class I would have been excited to take part in. I believe that good writing is, at its source, an experiment. And I have great respect for the diverse experiments that students bring to my classroom. In workshop, we approach each piece of writing with a sense of passion and discovery. I put a high value on the continuity that workshop discussions offer, the feeling that we as members of the workshop become a kind of family. Meeting each week to talk about craft and creativity is not only an honor, it’s also a great deal of fun.
