Elizabeth Klaimon

Elizabeth Klaimon is an Associate Professor of Writing in the Division of Liberal Arts.

Studio thinking and writing practice combine with seminar style teaching; the goal of my courses is to encourage students to engage fully with the writing process, to reflect and to revise, to critique their work, to say in writing what they mean to say, to become better, more confident writers — writers of clear voice.
