From Fulla: I enjoy working with students in all areas of writing and working through the idea of what being a writer means to each student. While working on in-process works or reviewing drafts, I enjoy assisting students in identifying and building confidence around the issues and questions that drive their creative projects regardless of genre or form. Often this means finding the through line between disparate endeavors while building a longform work. I am also interested in helping students who are exploring media that may be unfamiliar or intimidating. Given my own background in independent publishing, I am especially excited to work with those students who have questions around publication, curation, and organizing art events. My own work often takes hybrid forms, primarily incorporating prose, but what connects all my work is an emphasis on structure and how it affects and is affected by expression.
