If you’re searching for what you want to say or how you’re going to say it, I can facilitate that by asking you lots of questions. I can also help you clarify what is expected of a college paper in a particular major and what a particular assignment is asking for. I can help you consider expectations as you write and offer consultation as you try to meet them.
At Amherst I majored in English and Economics, which prepared me to be the editor of The WAC Journal, a national academic journal on Writing Across the Curriculum. I received my MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Virginia and have published short stories in several literary journals, including New Orleans Review and Mobius: The Journal of Social Change. I taught English at a rural New Hampshire public high school, ESL in South Korea, team-taught a writing intensive Modern Art History course with an art historian professor, and taught Intro to Creative Writing at a university.
I have worked in university writing centers in New Hampshire and North Carolina, where I did thousands of writing consultations with students and many with professors, too. I am interested in what people are trying to say. I am interested in what you want to say.
