My name is A.W. Burgess. I’m a published author and aspiring novelist, as well as an English Professor specializing in LGBT Studies, American Literature, Adaptation Studies, and Writing Across the Curriculum.

Currently, I have five major publications to my name, as well as numerous online contributions to such venues as Thought Co and Literary Ladies Guide.

I consider myself primarily an essayist and reviewer who is trained in literary criticism and analysis; however, for the past year or so (since about August 2018), I have been slowly and painstakingly working on my creative writing, including ventures in poetry, short stories, and a novel. I hope to be able to share some of these soon, in completed (and published!?) form.

For now, please follow my thoughts/writing adventures via my blog or check out the list of my publications.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

So, you want to get in touch? Great!
