 Ellen Herbert

Ellen Herbert’s novel, The Last Government Girl, won the Maryland Writers’ Best Novel Award. Short stories in her collection, Falling Women and Other Stories, have won a PEN Fiction and a Virginia Fiction Fellowship. Her writing has appeared in The Washington Post, First for Women, and literary magazines. 

Teaching style: Ellen uses poet William Stafford's method of critique, in which writers present their work and the rest of the class comments in writing as well as orally about what they liked and what could use more work.
