Instructor Erin Dorney is a freelance writer and marketing consultant working with advertising agencies and small businesses, as well as individual clients, to help with marketing strategies and copywriting. She is also the co-founder of Fear No Lit, a literary organization that hosts writing workshops and events. Erin will be teaching Creative Literary Explorations for Artists & Writers, Writing About: Art & You, and Make & Take: Zines for us this fall. Erin comes to us from a rural town along Lake Ontario in upstate/western New York where there were lots of apple farms, tons of lake-effect snow, and cornfields aplenty. Now she is settled into Lancaster City and creating inventive and powerful experiences in writing and literature for PCAD and our greater community.
