For me, not only writing but also teaching is a creative practice. In my writing classrooms students read compelling work from a wide range of writers—a variety of voices who have developed from diverse communities and employ contradictory writing techniques. We practice strategies for accessing the material that matters most and crafting and shaping that material to achieve a desired effect. My writing classes are vibrant and eclectic, and my students grow as writers and members of a writing community.
