Students in this class will each have at least one story critiqued by classmates and the instructor in a university-designed salon workshop. They will study craft fundamentals such as characterization, plot, and the function of details. Published stories will be analyzed as models, and exercise prompts will serve as craft practice. Each participant’s voice and style will be nurtured with a focus on ambition, an emerging sense of form, syntactical grace, editing and grammar.

She is a featured journalist in the 2019 Netflix documentary, The Confession Killer, and is writer in residence at Our Lady of the Lake University.
