Professor Brian Dickson began working at CCD in 2005. Currently, he teaches composition, creative writing and coordinates the Ourglass, CCD’s award-winning literary journal. He holds an M.A. in English from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a B.A. in English from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
He believes in every student’s capacity to learn and cultivate creativity. It’s all there--we just have to discover it!
Past publications include two poetry chapbooks, In a Heart’s Rut (HighFive press), Maybe This is How Tides Work (Finishing Line Press), and one book, All Points Radiant (WordTech, Cherry Grove Editions), and other creative and pedagogical journals.
When not teaching at the Community College of Denver, Brian avoids driving as much as possible to traipse around the front range region by foot, bike, bus or light-rail. He also lets loose by playing basketball, gardening and cooking.
