Thanks for your email. Although I am not a professor, I was an English major in college and worked as an asst. editor for The Library Journal when I lived in New York. I had a more-than-twenty-year career as a university administrator. I've been writing, such as it is/was, since I was a teen. In the last ten years, I've begun to take creative writing and the practice of writing much more seriously - reading on the subject, reading in general, attending writers' conferences, and WRITING! I try to give serious and thorough critiquing because I believe it really helps the writer and I want others to do the same for me.
