Brief Biographical Sketch:

Aside from my unapologetic affection for words that rhyme, I am also a huge fan of learning how things are made: paper, web pages, houses, songs ... a teacher once asked me to describe the process I imagined M&Ms went through to receive their candy coating, and I still think about that question sometimes.

As for usual biographical details: I am currently a teaching assistant at Harvard College, having graduated from the school in 2009 with a degree in Environmental Science & Public Policy. I'm heading to graduate school in the fall, a History program where I'll be studying American urban and environmental history.

H4485: The Mail (The art and craft of letter writing) in HSSP Spring 2011 (Feb. 19, 2011)
Dear someone considering this class, Why send a letter when you can call, text, email, chat, tweet, or message instantaneously? What makes a handwritten note memorable, a thank you card heartfelt, a piece of post personal, or a business letter professional? This is a non-fiction creative writing class with a correspondence twist: you get to specify your audience. You get to specify your medium. You get to tell your story or apologize for your mistake or confess your love. I'll get to help guide you through the art and craft of letter writing, the weirdness that is communication, and the mysterious backroom landscape of the local post office. Why? Because I think letters are a unique and enduring form of self expression. And I think you will, too. Yours, earnestly, Spring
