Coming from a long lineage of word dabblers and jazzed up story tellers, writing is deep within Christina Lundberg’s roots. She has a B.A. from the University of Minnesota and an M.F.A. from Naropa University. She has taught composition, technical writing, and creative writing in community writing centers, community colleges, and universities. As a writing teacher for the past eleven years, Christina recognizes that writing practice, like anything can go dormant and loose it’s splendor. Intentionally changing things up, experimenting, and taking a new road is a way to unblock stagnancy, and allow for opening and momentum to occur. Her writing courses do just that; they aim to provide new angles and avenues to enter the page. Her hope is that your writing will continue to be rejuvenated, renewed, and refreshed.
