When it comes to the art of writing, Bryan is meticulous about grammar and proofreading. He has composed dozens of essays and research projects in both English and Italian for graduate and undergraduate coursework; mostly these have been analyses of literature and culture (prose, poetry, films, literary theory). His experience extends to the underpaid work of guiding quasi-literate, tech-immersed students in the effective critique of their own argumentation and mechanics. Emotionally speaking, he has more or less recovered from his role as instructor for college composition classes such as Expository Writing and Scientific and Technical Writing. Under contract with Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, he and a close colleague selected and edited a series of essays that explore the depiction and significance of dream states in Italian cinema. Together they also crafted the critical introduction to those essays. Despite the non-stop excitement offered by life within academia, Bryan enjoys writing creatively in his free time and aspires to have his tales published in the near future, hoping eager readers will still be around.
