Instructor of E210: Beginning Creative Writing

What are you working on?
I’m working on a lesson plan for this afternoon.

How do you spend most of your time in the Eddy?
Using the computers for lesson planning and my own homework. I also have two classes here, Matthew Cooperman’s Crossing Boundaries and Sasha Steensen’s Graduate Poetry Workshop.

Describe the Eddy in One Word:

What is your favorite poem?
Degrees of Gray in Philipsburg By Richard Hugo because of was the first poem I read that really inspired me to write about places, and the rural places I grew up. It is a wonderfully sad poem.

What is your advice to CSU English majors?
Read and write a lot and equally. Have lots of discussions with classmates and friends on what you’re reading. That discourse is important to building community.
