English Professor, Defiance College
As a professor of English at a small liberal arts college in Ohio, I work with people dedicated to helping students develop their intellectual and creative skills. I teach literature, creative writing, general writing, the structure of language, the pedagogy of language arts teaching, and the interdisciplinary study of global cultural issues.
Defiance College named me the Richard Stroede Distinguished Faculty in April 2011, which culminated in my 17 April 2012 presentation . . .
"What a Poem Can Do: Poetry Beyond Meaning and Being."
