Education: Every Writer a Student, Every Student a Teacher

I consider all writers - whether beginning, established, or instructors - to be students of writing. As we write better and more complex stories, we continue to face hurdles in our own development as writers. To succeed as writers - whether to publish or to simply express the stories that mean the most to us - we must continue to learn and adapt. Just as a novel is never truly "finished," so, too, is learning never "complete."

The corollary, of course, is that we are each of us teachers as well. Whether we run workshops courses or simply journal about our days, everyone has something of value to share.

It's my hope to establish a community of writers here which allows everyone the freedom to express and the encouragement to listen and actually hear the words on the page. This, to me, is what it means to be a student of writing.

Currently, I'm putting together an open online course on leading a creative writing workshop. Whether you are a teacher or student, this course can help you get the most out of the workshops you participate in. To visit the course, please click here.

Interest in MFA Programs?

A Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing can offer many benefits to a creative writer. If you're considering applying, please visit our MFA Resources Page.

Learning to Teach

The study of writing is a noble field, but crime still pays better...so to avoid a life of degeneracy, we recommend considering a career in teaching. Even if you never do become a professional educator, teaching writing can be extremely beneficial to your writing. I encourage you to check out our Writing Pedagogy Resources.
