Spring 2013 Writing Class Schedule
When did you first feel like a writer?
At 12 years of age when I won an essay contest in 7th grade. I might have felt like a writer prior to that, but that is when I knew I was a writer.
What's your philosophy about teaching a writing class?
I believe in meeting the student at the level at which he or she presents and working to assist them forward from there. In a class, members come together all at different levels of skill and understanding. This can be challenging for teachers, but also wonderfully helpful to the writers. And, of course, it helps when the teacher has a passion for the subject and is willing to share it with students.
If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be and why?
Catherine of Wuthering Heights, so I could tell her to grow up and listen to her heart.
