Steven Hayward Ph.D.
I’m the fiction writer in the department, and teach most of the prose fiction workshops. My grad work was in Renaissance Drama, so I love teaching that as well. I’m Canadian, so you’ll often find me teaching something connected to my home and native land. I’ve published two novels, Don’t Be Afraid (2011) andThe Secret Mitzvah of Lucio Burke, as well as a collection of short stories. When not in the classroom I’m mountain biking (Colorado Springs has some seriously incredible trails), or skiing, or playing the guitar, or playing squash with my friend and English Department colleague George Butte (who is always able to beat me).
