About

I’m an M.A. student at Auburn studying creative writing. This blog started for a class and chronicles our journey through theories of rhetoric and composition. Many posts discuss the issue of what writing looks like in the classroom because I teach first year writing courses as part of my master’s program. I do have a background in secondary English education. I kept it up after the class because I like writing about teaching and trying to figure things out through reflection and am grateful for the comments of other bloggers.

I am also a regional coordinator for a program called Poetry Out Loud (www.poetryoutloud.org), a national program for 9-12th graders. If you teach those students, you should really check it out.

    Very thoughtful blog. When I wright I forget about the audience occasionally but use my own mood and emotion to try and engage the reader. Delivering a message also helps me. Visit my blog at workerinlight.wordpress.com Cheers!

  4. You would have an interesting perspective. For me, writing is what I do for pleasure. I don’t have any formal qualifications in it (beyond a high school writer’s workshop subject) but I am actively learning the craft and working toward the possibility of publication.

  5. I have always wanted to do a pure Lit course and get trained under teachers who are passionate about literature. I’ll be a regular follower of your blog.
    Thank you.
