Office Hours: by appointment (available Mon - Thurs.)
I encourage students to visit me during office hours throughout the semester (visiting students should come equipped with a specific question and/or a work sample to discuss). Students MUST sign up for one 15-20 minute conference following the first submission in which to pointedly discuss submitted writing. A second conference (following the second submission) is voluntary.
Note: Submitted work is not returned with “edits," instead, it is discussed during conferences. I find it best to be on hand to contextualize comments and to answer any questions or concerns such comments may generate. My objective is not to “fix” any one story, but rather to improve a student’s overall writing, and, as such, I’m not interested in students necessarily revising their work in close accordance with my comments. YOU own your story. Never forget that. Students may of course bring copies of their own work and take notes during these sessions.
