Nan Phifer

Master Liberal Arts, Johns Hopkins U.

This spring I led a demonstration workshop, “Writing to Make Whole,” at the Conference on College Composition and Communication in Portland; and for the affiliate of NCTE, Assembly for Expanded Perspectives in Learning, (AEPL,) my presentation was “Writing to Reconcile and Transcend.” Several years ago the Oregon Writing Project honored me with the title “resident scholar.” I lead workshops for libraries, retreat and renewal organizations, writers’ groups, continuing education programs, and religious organizations. I’ve taught on-line for Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley.
At this time I’m in Colorado creating a writing-to-heal series for people who suffer from PTSD. Please see:
