Research Summary

My research encompasses a wide range of traditional and developing trends and discussions in Writing Center theory. I am interested in language and the craft of writing in its numerous forms. In both academic and creative research on composition, my focus is on the dynamic and complex relationship between assessment and writing. My literary research is situated at the point of convergence between narratological and ludological hermeneutics. My craft-based influences lie in my research of Imagist, Objectivist, Abstract Expressionist, post-avant and Language poetics. My creative studies are also focused on emerging and established experimental writing, including multimedia and asemic writing.
