Brandon’s BYU Writing Class


Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is that aspiring writers do best when they are encouraged to practice a lot, to discover which writing methods work best for them, and to learn their process. I push for a large amount of writing, the ability to turn off the internal editor, and finishing projects you start. Through the course of finishing stories the student is able to learn which of the various different writing tools are going to help them achieve their own writing goals.
