Dr. Jennifer Phillips-Denny - Tutor Coordinator 

Welcome to the Write Site! I have been the coordinator of the Write Site at Texas Woman’s University since January of 2011. I also teach courses in the English Department. I have a variety of teaching experience gained over the past 16 years, including teaching numerous college English courses at TWU, UNT, Grayson College, and Colorado State University. I was the Assistant Director of Freshman English and the UNT Student Writing Lab from 2001-2006. My other experiences in higher education include managing course redesign projects, instructional design, learning technologies, and assessment. I received in B.A. in Sociology from Texas Tech in 1995, an M.A. in English from UNT in 1998, and a Ph. D. in English in 2001. My areas of scholarly interest are Victorian literature and rhetoric and composition.

I spend my leisure time taking care of my pets (We have a lot of pets!); reading and writing; playing video games with my husband, David, and my son, Devin; and trying to be on the water in a kayak as much as possible. I also dabble in gardening and some mixed media art, but I’m not very good at either, so I mostly stick with reading and writing!

I love managing the Write Site, working with our awesome writing consultants, and TWU students!
