description of :
I am a Canadian poet and screenwriter, and
am looking for a way to merge my love of
writing with my love of teaching, and am
looking forward to teaching people about the
fine art of the written word.
Teacher's qualifications:
I have worked with several leading Canadian
authors, whose work has been published
nationally and internationally. I have also
worked as creative director and editor for a
local university literary review, having
received high praise for my groundbreaking
work. I also have been published in several
Canadian publications, and continually
produce new work for publication.
's preferred teaching style:
I have a very relaxed teaching style. I
usually assign reading and a small amount of
homework, so that part of our class time is
working through individual pieces and
looking directly at technical examples,
while a portion of our time can remain for
discussion and analytical thinking.
