EducationMaster of Arts in Creative Writing from UT-Chattanooga.
ExperienceI'm a writer with over six years of experience editing and providing constructive feedback to students. My primary focus is creative writing (short stories,) but I'm well versed in composition, essay writing, literary analysis, and rhetoric. Don't know where to start on an essay? Having trouble editing or rewriting? Need an experienced and critical eye on a piece of fiction? I can help you out.
Writing is a very difficult and often under-appreciated talent. Creative writing in particular can be a tiring and emotional process. I'm very familiar with the different stages that writers go through, and I understand how difficult it can be to accept criticism. Part of my approach is to teach students how to take critical feedback and embrace a positive and constructive mindset.
Writing, creative or otherwise, is defined by perseverance. It's so easy to write something, get negative feedback, and give up in frustration. I've been there myself, and I feel that it's my duty to help other writers overcome this.
My experience comes from two degrees worth of creative fiction workshops and over a decade of writing. I love reading and editing stories and providing feedback. You will be hard pressed to find someone as passionate about helping new writers as I am.
HobbiesReading, writing, cooking, hiking.
