Sarah Gerard's Published Work

Sarah was an amazing, knowledgeable, well-prepared, and kind instructor. She chose a really amazing array of nonfiction readings for us to read and discuss. She facilitated thoughtful, intelligent discussions about craft and content about her selected readings and also our own essays. She provided us each with a really helpful letter of feedback, marginalia comments, and even met with me one on one to talk about writing. I feel very grateful for this experience.
