A Hello from Dr. Matt Fullerty

Our very own Dr. Matt Fullerty (English Ph.D. 2008) has begun a new tenure-track position at Chowan University in North Carolina teaching Creative Writing (fiction and poetry) and Composition. In spring 2013 he will teach English and American literature as well as an upper-level fiction class. GW students do not fear; Dr. Fullerty continues to teach at GW — writing skills, in the evenings, and online — for the Police Science B.A. in the College of Professional Studies, working with Commander Andrew Solberg, Police Commander of DC’s Fifth District. 

Chowan University is a small liberal arts college founded in 1848 in Murfreesboro, NC, a tiny town just 10 miles over the Virginia border. Dr. Fullerty writes: “So far I’ve settled very well, and am enjoying being part of a small community down here. As an ex-pat Brit, I haven’t managed to start drinking sweet tea just yet, but I can always learn! North Carolina is a beautiful state, and the campus is very picturesque. The town of Murfreesboro is about a 90 minutes drive west of Virginia Beach and is known for its watermelon festival and as a bird sanctuary. It’s the perfect place to write my third novel, a science-fiction book called The Necklace.” Make sure to check out the Chowan English Department’s faculty webpage.

Dr. Fullerty will become a US citizen in spring 2013, after ten years stateside. You can contact him through his website [http://www.mattfullerty.com]. 

Congratulations Professor Fullerty!
