Materials for Graduate Students (and Colleagues)

Here you’ll find some links to unofficial guides I’ve drawn up for my students as well as a how-to guide I’ve written for Assay (i.e., “Research Statements for Creative Writers”).

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.
