Southeastern welcomes students back for the start of classes this week while we continue to keep all faculty, staff and students who are not yet able to make it to campus in our thoughts as the region works to recover from devastating flooding.
We attempted to reach ALL our students in recent days, but we realize communication has been difficult, if not impossible for some. If you are just now able to see this message, please contact so we can have a better understanding of your status and work with you so you can attain your educational goals.

I was born and raised in Louisiana. I have worked as a drywall hanger, a draftsman, and a press operator in a flag-printing factory.I now teach at Southeastern Louisiana University, where I also serve as assistant editor for Louisiana Literature. In 2003,I won the D Vickers Award for creative writing, and my work has been frequently recognized by the William Faulkner Society in New Orleans. I live with my wife, Lucy, our daughter, Lily, and our son, Levi. I am currently at work on my second novel.
