I have a BA in English and Creative Writing from SUNY Binghamton and an MFA in writing from Sarah Lawrence College. For more than ten years, I have taught in higher education as well as in the New York City public school system. Currently, I teach writing and literature at Montclair State University and William Paterson University. I have also tutored extensively, both at Bloomfield College and privately, helping students to brainstorm, draft, research, revise, and edit their writing; as well as to be better readers and analysers of literature (non-fiction and all creative writing). In addition, I am a published short-story writer whose work has appeared in national journals (Lunchticket.org, 2015; Folio, Spring 2014; PIF, 2011); and I have strong ties to writing communities in NJ and NY. Writing requires patience, practice, and perseverance. I can greatly help you in this process.
