Glenn Irwin has taught a variety of English courses ranging from Nature Writing to Myth in Modern Literature to Business Writing and has won awards for his poetry and fiction. He began teaching after years of working in the lumber yards, factories, and warehouses of St. Louis. Partially because of this background, he designs his writing classes around his belief in the complexity of all students and what he sees as a human desire to express that complexity clearly. He believes, as Joan Didion states, that we write to figure out what we think.
