Nathan Lowe joined the faculty in 2007. He earned a Master of Fine Arts for creative writing from the University of Idaho. He teaches creative writing, composition, interdisciplinary core and honors courses. In his classes, students are prompted and encouraged to share their knowledge, experience and writing with each other. Students become a community of voices and writers, where they both find commonalities and explore differences between themselves. This interaction, along with the skills they learn in the writing process, will hopefully set them up to become more invested in their community or career, and encourage life-long learning.
Lowe’s essays have been published or are forthcoming in journals such as Ascent, Blood Orange Review, Beechers Magazine and The Chattahoochee Review. Honored with a Pushcart Prize nomination and listed as “notable” in Best American Essays, Lowe is currently at work on a book of essays set in the many farm and ranch trucks in which he grew up, witnessed the lives of adults around him, and eventually drove for himself.
