MFA: Creative Writing and Poetics
B.A. English, University of Washington, Seattle
I had a very eclectic upbringing with some traveling, some schooling, and a whole lot of writing. Throughout my life, I’ve gravitated towards writing and language, and it’s become a comforting hobby as well as a career path. Writing has given me the opportunity to not only exercise my creative muscles, but also develop my academic and professional communication. I’ve been tutoring for several years and enjoy helping students with their projects. From brainstorming to proofreading, there isn’t a part of the writing process I don’t like. I love getting into the nitty gritty of projects and seeing just what we can do to improve them. My goal is to help students learn to find the fun in writing, just as I did as a kid. Using your brain and putting your thoughts into things can be really difficult, and while I can’t do that for you, I can make it easier!
