WRITING, EDITING, AND CONSULTING SERVICES
THE AVOCADO AT AVON HIGH SCHOOL
An ongoing project I started when I began teaching Creative Writing. Each semester, students submit their favorite work throughout the semester to be organized into an anthology of their work and experiences with the course.
HOOSIER WRITING PROJECT:
My project centered on authenticity in writing in the classroom using Nancy Atwell and Peter Elbow's research as a guide. The result has shifted me away from more formulaic writing toward a more frequent use of writer's notebooks and journaling as well as a shift in focus toward exploring our voices as writers and making clear meaning.
TEACHER CREATIVITY FELLOW
Creative Writing Immersion
My trip through the American Southwest to write about nature, the road, and spectacle in modern America. Still a work-in-progress, the experience continues to teach me much about my own writing as well as how I can encourage the writing of others.
