Dr. Allen C. Jones
Allen C. Jones teaches as Visiting Assistant Professor of English at the University of Puget Sound. As a creative writer, a digital humanist, and a scholar, he takes a very interdisciplinary approach to literature. His digital work centers on interactive 3D visualizations ("games") that encourage users to experience alternative and "non-linear" readings of a text. His creative work appears in Ekleksographia, Fiction Southeast , The Louisiana Review, The Bitter Oleander, The Texas Review, GSU Review, Third Wednesday, Zillah, The American Journal of Nursing, and other journals and anthologies. He has recently finished his first novel and is shopping it around to a long and illustrious list of slush piles.
Recent Events: November 2014
Allen recently conducted a writing workshop with the full-immersion fourth graders at Rosa Parks Elementary in Berkeley, California. Students learned about guided free writing and surrealist techniques including the Exquisite Corpse.
