I have been fascinated by books and writing for as long as I can remember, so majoring in English and pursuing advanced degrees in the subject were natural choices for me. Too often, however, when I tell people what I do, they think they need to watch their language or they tell me that English was their worst subject. What I wish for students of writing and communication to understand is that language is flexible rather than rigid, that by playing with language, we can find the best ways to communicate our ideas and emotions. My pedagogy is informed by a belief that anyone can improve as a writer even if it takes some more time than others.
