Contemporary creative writing teachers are superheroes. We strive to introduce students to entwined genres, multiple technologies, and/or some of the evolving social expectations on writers, as well as covering basic writing and editing skills in traditional genres. In this session, W. Mark Giles discusses ways to get students excited about the permeable border between fiction and nonfiction, while Kathy Mac presents the benefits (many) and challenges (few) in creating student shadow juries for real literary awards.
