The desire to create something new, tangible or intangible, is deep-rooted. Our education system, even at the university level, often inadvertently squashes that beautiful, wild desire. Yet creative impulse and practice have led to our greatest works of art and to many of our greatest scientific and medical discoveries. How does the creative writing classroom offer a model for teaching creativity and engaging with our intricate, swift-moving world?

Ms. Michelle Regalado Deatrick received her B.A. from Wesleyan and her Master’s from 
Harvard. While working on her doctoral dissertation in political science and statistics, she began writing fiction and poetry. Michelle has an MFA from UM where she received the 
Hopwood Awards in Fiction and Poetry, the Bain-Swigget Prize for Poetry, and a Graduate Classics translation prize. Her poetry and fiction have appeared and are forthcoming in 
several literary journals.
