Teaching Philosophy My aim is to get writers to generate writing.  I strive to foster an environment within which students   forge compelled works, invent, lie, subvert, interrogate, and are reflective, informed, expansive workshop participants. A component part of the process demands delving into conceptual and practical aspects of writing, the formal devices that contain the sense-making process.
