Linda Loomis

Linda Loomis, BA and MA from SUNY Oswego, teaches in the English/Creative Writing department. She formerly directed the journalism program and, in the 1990s, was director of communications and editor of the alumni magazine for the Office of Alumni and University Development. She was an editor of the award- winning Liverpool Salina Review newspaper for 20 years prior to that and was named New York State Press Association Writer of the Year.

In addition to newspaper and magazine writing, she has several poems and personal narratives published in journals and anthologies. She is grateful to teach at Oswego where she works with "wonderful, talented young adults" as they develop their writing styles. She also regularly offers writing workshops for teens and adults through area libraries.

CRW 308-Intermediate creative nonfiction workshop builds on skills acquired in CRW 208. Students read, critique, and discuss texts by published authors in the genre; practice craft through short exercises; write factual texts for workshop, and offer informed criticism on each other’s work.  We discuss issues of craft and ethical matters associated with writing nonfiction.  We hone writing and editing skills, expand critical vocabulary, become familiar with sub-genres of nonfiction, and apply ethical standards to make decisions as we discern fact from fiction and integrate researched material into a large writing project.
