I have taught writing to middle and high school students for many years, but I have also taught adults in many settings.
I have taught in the Kenyon Review Writers Workshop for Teachers since 2014. The workshop offers writers who are also high school teachers a chance to generate new work of their own, through prompts that they can also use with their own students. We also discuss pedagogy, publication, and balancing the work of teaching and writing.
I have been a guest teacher in undergraduate and graduate classes at Tulane University and the University of New Orleans. I have also served on a thesis committee for a student in UNO’s M.F.A. program in poetry, meeting with him to discuss his thesis, scoring his cumulative exam, and questioning him during his defense.
I am available for workshops, lectures, and other kinds of teaching, and can offer critique, generative writing activities, revision activities, guided literary analysis (with an eye toward reading like a writer), and other pedagogical magic tricks. Inquire.
