Service

Along with other Iowa grads, Ryan works part-time as a One Morgan Writers' Workshop Thesis Adviser to 8th graders at Morgan County Middle School in Georgia, conducted online.

He is also proud to volunteer for PEN America's Prison Writing Program. For a hundred years, PEN has defended writers from harassment, censorship, even the penalty of death, all over the world. 


Ryan enjoyed teaching creative writing at Lincoln High School in Portland, OR. His 9th graders' stories exploring the mysteries of pizza and aliens--or sometimes very serious subjects--were a blast to read. He looks forward to living in a city that has a WITS program very soon.
