Welcome to the creatively-oriented section of this website! As I teach freshmen writing, fiction and creative nonfiction writing keeps emerging as a vital lifeblood of learning. In my life, too (not to be extracted from my teaching life), creative writing sustains me just as much as flipping truck tires at the gym and tossing together new vegan recipes for a sometimes skeptical, but always supportive, girlfriend.
This mini-blog will document my experiences with fiction writing while in graduate school and teaching; it will also serve as a space to explore creative writing processes as I polish my first novel, a queer YA fantasy.
