UW-Green Bay's Rebecca Meacham

Meet Rebecca Meacham

“Although we have three separate tracks in the English major, all majors take a gateway course called Literary Studies, in which they study theories of literature and practice the kinds of writing and research specific to literary study in preparation for their upper-level coursework. Our most popular track is Creative Writing, which allows students to pursue their dreams of being the next great novelist, while building fundamental writing skills and creativity. One of our primary goals as a department is to find internships for all interested students, so let us know what your dream job is. We can help!”
- Rebecca Meacham, MFA, PhD Professor of English, Humanities, and Women's and Gender Studies Chair, English Department Director, Creative Writing Program Advisor, Sheepshead Review University of Wisconsin-Green Bay
