Kory Sessions-Riseley – Developmental Studies

Back to Instructor Webpages



I'm so excited to share with students what I've learned about writing. Come by my office and introduce yourself or feel free to email me so I can help you meet your writing goals.

As a teacher of writing in the Developmental Studies and English Language Acquisition Departments, I am drawn to this quote:

"Tell me more. Tell me all you can. I want to understand more about everything you feel and know and all the changes inside and out of you. Let more come out."

--Brenda Ueland, If You Want to Write 


Writing is a process. We don't always (or ever?) sit down and write perfectly. We start in one place and often end up somewhere different than where we expected. Writing is also a gift, but it's a gift with two recipients. First, writing gives us our own voice. It gives us insight into ourselves. It helps us know ourselves more deeply and more intimately. It's also a gift to others. Our readers can know themselves more deeply, too. They can say, "Yes! I feel the same way. I just didn't know how to put it in my own words."

So--stay curious. Be courageous. And no matter what, keep writing.
