Welcome!  This site is a place where you may find my online books, articles, and essays. Some are listed below. Others are in More Writings.

 

First, I'd like to note that I am not the subject of the movie Richard Jewell. That Richard Jewell is deceased, I'm not related to him, and I know nothing about him except that he was wrongly accused of a bombing at Atlanta's Olympic Park.
 
Second, I am, in fact, the Richard Jewell who is General Coordinator of MnWE--Minnesota Writing and English (www.MnWE.org). MnWE runs an annual spring conference of 100-200 university, college, and college-in-the-high-schools faculty and related staff and publishers. I also edit and send the "MnWE News" every two months to about 3000 faculty and related professionals on the MnWE Listserv in Minnesota and parts of nearby states. If you'd like to join the Listserv, please see www.MnWE.org, or email me--your email address is never given to anyone else without your permission, and you may unsubscribe at any time.

 

I also recently retired from teaching college English and Humanities. If you are one of my former studentsor a faculty member looking for examples of my online course materialsyou may find my old syllabuses, course packets, and online course records at IHCC Courses (above). My free Web books are listed above and described in more detail below.

 

If you're from Warren School near Monmouth, from Monmouth or Shimer Colleges, or from ABSW or SFTS in and near Berkeley, California--were we classmates? Drop me a note!
 
Please also feel free to read, use, and share* my online books: my college composition textbook, humanities handbook, meditation dictionary, and other books and sites listed here. These sites average 40-50 hits per day and have been used by a number of colleges and universities across the country and overseas. You also are welcome to email or phone me with questions or comments.
