I read, I write, and I teach, somewhere in the U.S.
I am a creative writer with one published book, one unpublished manuscript making the rounds, and one manuscript in progress. I teach and chair the English department at an independent high school I call Starfleet Academy (SA).
When I started this blog, I was adjuncting at three other institutions: a two-year technical college (2YC), a four-year liberal arts college (BAC), and a nearby community college (NCC). This was the blog of a crazy adjunct. I feel a lot less crazy now. When I became chair at SA, I stopped teaching creative writing in an M.F.A. program at a university, No Longer New RU (NLNRU). I am working one-on-one with a couple of students in a low-residency M.F.A. program, but am also planning to stop doing that soon.
The title of the blog is taken from a poem by Cornelius Eady.
