“I attended EOU as a non-traditional student from 2011 to 2016. All of my professors and mentors during that time were phenomenal, I learned and grew so much as both a writer and a reader. I can honestly say that I would not be where I am professionally if it were not for their guidance and instruction. They were instrumental in helping me publish poems in The Paddock Review, basalt, Red Savina Review, The Tower Journal and Nailed. Not to mention my poetry chapbook, All Those Lilting Tongues, which was just published in September 2018. In addition to those publications, I also teach creative writing courses online for Southern New Hampshire University as an adjunct instructor. I owe all my recent successes to the faculty of EOU’s English and Writing Department.”
