Who We Are
Founded in May 2002, Columbia Artist/Teachers (CA/T) is a faculty of Writing Program MFA candidates.
CA/T provides MFA students with training and teaching opportunities on and off campus, with students of all ages and levels. We work with local schools, community organizations, and Columbia students.
CA/Ts enhance their own understanding of writing and literature while gaining experience that will serve them in obtaining—and excelling in—post-MFA teaching positions.
CA/Ts are encouraged to design curriculum and develop programs that support their aspirations as arts educators.
CA/T is advised by Professor Alan Ziegler, the Writing Program’s Director of Pedagogy.
