“Writing is the ultimate creative act. It’s how we craft and share our vision of the world, and how we remake ourselves and tell our stories. And what if, as I write, my thinking changes? I revise. Here at Gustavus, I’m happiest when I sit down with student writers as they recreate themselves through writing. Imagine the thrill of working with brand new first-year students as they try on new discourses, reimagining themselves as biologists and nurses and poets and teachers? And then, four years later, there they are! Not just on the page, but heading out into the world.”
