Faculty FrontDoor

Scott Morris


I am a novelist with two published novels who has taught writing and literature to students from a wide variety of backgrounds.

I helped start and served as executive editor of the award-winning Oxford American magazine, and attended graduate school at Oxford University and the University of Chicago. I received my MFA from New York University.

My strategy as a teacher is to help students understand that good writing begins with clear thinking and reading. Some students are more gifted than others, some come by it naturally, but every student can learn to do it.
