Photo of Danielle HarmsHi, I’m Danielle Harms. I write, teach, and work in higher education.

I am a PhD student in English at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where I’m concentrating on creative writing and writing pedagogy. I teach in the English Department, read prose for Cream City Review, and serve as the Graduate Student Advisor for the undergraduate student journal Furrow Magazine. My writing has been published in the Denver Quarterly, Baltimore Review, Salon, and elsewhere. My teaching materials have been featured in the New York Times for other educators.

I was a Term Assistant Professor of English at George Mason University, where I earned my MFA in creative writing, and served as the editor-in-chief of Phoebe: A Journal of Literature and Art. I’ve taught for the English Language Academy at the University of Colorado Denver, at the Language Learning Center at Colorado’s Emily Griffith Technical College, and at Wartburg West, an experiential urban studies program of Wartburg College, where I was Director of Outreach and Project Development. My teaching career began teaching elementary students abroad, first at a hogwan in Ilsan, South Korea, and then at a rural, public school in Southern Hungary.
