Teaching & Learning Materials

Here you’ll find some links to unofficial guides I’ve drawn up for my students as well as how-to guides or pieces on (creative) writing pedagogy that I’ve written for Assay.

Many of these materials are primarily tailored for creative nonfictionists at the University of Missouri. That said, if you are not one of my students and nonetheless find these useful, then feel free to borrow any wisdom you find.

Of course, I’d love it if you attributed any adoptions you make.
