Nicole Miller has published essays in New Letters (Dorothy Cappon Prize, 2014; Best American Essays, Notable 2016) and Arts & Letters. Her fiction has appeared in The May Anthologies, edited by Jill Paton Walsh and Sebastian Faulks, and Abundant Grace, ed. Richard Peabody. After completing an M.Phil in Victorian Literature at Lincoln College, Oxford University, she did a Ph.D. in English at University College, London, and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing at Emerson College, where she held the Graduate Fellowship. She is a scholarly reader for The Oxford English Dictionary and teaches literature and writing at Politics and Prose, Grub Street (Boston) and Kingston University (UK).

Teaching Style: Nicole draws from classic literature and craft books in her teaching. She often assigns relevant passages or short pieces for close reading during the workshop time to illustrate technique, and assigns stories and excerpts to be read between classes during a series (at the end of class, she hands out a bibliography of recommended reading). Exercises given in class and as homework are designed to generate new writing and approaches to revision. Constructive feedback is at the core of her philosophy, and a part of every workshop. She encourages students to share their writing in class and to talk about their favorite authors and ongoing creative projects, and to share resources and announcements about upcoming readings and literary events within the Washington D.C. community.
