I love to write and I will impart that love to you. I have thirteen years of experience teaching writing, research, and public speaking at the university level. We each have a unique writing voice and I will help you find that voice within you and build self-confidence. I have worked with many students who were told by other teachers that they had no talent, but we proved them wrong!

Dr. Maggie Fry does everything in her power to help students achieve greatness. Her lectures are relevant, thorough, and engaging. She is equal parts witty and attentive; any feedback given is done so with an open mind. I believe that she has made me a better, more confident writer due to her encouragement - going out of her way to provide me with a list of publishers who accept student work. She gave me the courage to pursue my passion in life and finally declare my major as English with a concentration in writing.
