Hi all, new member here. A little about myself: I taught English, mainly Composition and British Literature, for about 15 years. And like all English teachers, I've always wanted to work on the other side of the page, so to speak. I've been lucky enough to have a variety of essays and short stories published and now am trying my hand at a novel. I'm looking forward to working with other writers and being part of the community!

Hi, welcome to the Hatrack writing community. Taught English composition and British literature fifteen years? Oh my. Seems like that might have been college basic studies instruction.
My experiences with those are from several sides "of the page": student, pedagogy student, tutor, instructor, composition and literature theory study and research, confrontational political culture, and the different schools of thought thereof -- all for creative writing designs.
Curious if you followed a particular school of composition theory thought? Traditional, Process, Post-process? Or other? My experiences therein were contentious due to intensive experiences with each over the years and instructor and department passions for one or another. The Process method instruction itself is a foundational contribution to the current creative writing workshop model, beauties, warts, and all, and a large portion of which is Hatrack's model.
