Jenny Grosvenor is a Senior Lecturer in the English Department who specializes in Creative Nonfiction Writing. She earned her BA in English Literature from Smith College, her MA in English Education from Columbia University, and her MFA in Creative Writing from Bennington College. Grosvenor's niche derives from her penchant for course design, evidenced in her launch of new writing offerings in both the English Department and the Honors College at The University of Vermont: Writing Toward Happiness, Crafting Point of Virew, Writing Science & Sustainability, and, as faculty for the new Minor in Reporting and Documentary Storytelling, Writing Photojournalism.
Prior to teaching, Grosvenor was a copyeditor at Time-Life Books and a reporter, advertising copywriter, and writer-producer for LIFE and Sports Illustrated magazines. In addition to full-time teaching, advising undergraduates, and mentoring graduate students, Grosvenor continues to write. In her anthology of student fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, Crafting Point of View: Experimentation, Imitation, & Exploration in the Creative Writing Process, Grosvenor shares her obsession with this particular rhetorical device utilized in shifts between second-and first-person in her memoir-in-progress, Tell.
Grosvenor recently earned a Fellowship at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) and completed an Artist's Residency at Gullkistan Center for Creativity in Iceland.
