About Joshua

Hi there! My name is Joshua. I am a graduate of Grand Valley State University who holds a Bachelor's Degree in Writing. I eat, sleep and breathe the English language. My experience within the field is varied and fairly eclectic. I am the founding editor and editor-in-chief of a literary journal. We are a web based publication that releases a yearly anthology of our best work. I am proficient in all fields of writing, from fiction and creative nonfiction to academic essay writing extending all the way into the field of professional (business) writing. I have experience tutoring at the undergraduate level and have had my essay collections published in GVSU writing department textbooks as well as creative work published in various literary journals.

My techniques are geared toward those who may have a fear of written communication due to the rigidity of the way it's taught. Our school systems approach the English language with a firmness not necessarily conducive to a creative or forward thinking mind. Grammar can sometimes find itself through logic and subtle prodding rather than stone cut explanations and forced regurgitation of dry textbook materials. The written word is a fun, fluid and flowing thing. It should be viewed as such. I can help to set your student on a path toward lifelong friendship with written communication in a way that seems less like work than plain old fun. After all, retention is more often than not a voluntary process. One that requires willful participation rather than lugubrious memorization.
