Staff Bibliography

In addition to their work at the Writing Center—and to their pedagogical roles at colleges throughout the city—our consultants lead active writing lives. They are essayists, novelists, poets, reviewers, and editors, and they run presses, reading series, and magazines. This bibliography showcases some of the writing work consultants do.

This list compiles just some of the many accomplishments of our staff; other information about consultants can be found in their biographies.
