About Jonathan: I have taught English, Writing, Creative Writing, TEFL, and ESl in the UK, Spain, the USA, and South Korea. As a published short fiction writer and contributing editor for Pelekinesis Press, I am particularly interested in creative writing and publication development. In addition to my creative work, I have delivered academic presentations on managing a student-led magazine and using short flash fiction writing exercises in the composition classroom. Originally from England, I live now in Wisconsin with my wife and two daughters.

My Advice to Walden Students
My advice to Walden students is read (and reread) the instructions! The devil is in the detail...
Why I enjoy teaching at Walden:
I enjoy teaching because I enjoy learning. As an instructor, I learn a great deal about my subject focus not only from my own research and development but from my students.
What students can expect from me as a teacher:
As an instructor, students can expect that I will be responsive and friendly! I believe in a collaborative learning environment, one in which mutual respect and communication are the foundations.
