University of Colorado Denver

I am very happy to be teaching for the University of Colorado Denver’s creative writing program this year (2017/2018).

Lighthouse Writers Workshop

I am very happily on faculty at the Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver, CO, where I teach workshops in craft and form.  Some of these workshops are online, and some of them are in Denver.

Most recently, I have been asked to teach courses on the short fiction of Lydia Davis, the short fiction of Joy Williams and Deborah Eisenberg, and introductory, intermediate, and advanced workshops in writing the short story.

I hope you will check the Lighthouse schedule and consider enrolling for one of these small, engaging workshops!

West Chester University

Below, you will find a brief list of some of courses I’m teaching–or have taught– for West Chester University.  I am currently on “child rearing leave” for AY 2017/2018, but please feel free to contact me with questions about these courses, the syllabi and reading lists, about the teaching of creative writing, generally, and/or the creative writing program here at West Chester University.
