Dr. Joseph Zeppetello

Senior Professional Lecturer


Dr. Zeppetello teaches fiction and nonfiction writing, writing theory, and literature. While he enjoys teaching advanced workshop, he is also pleased to teach first-year writing. He has published three novels and various short stories, and has also published an academic book, several articles, and reviewed numerous textbooks for the teaching of writing and rhetoric. He hopes that students in his classes are simultaneously introduced to the discipline of writing as well as the art. His writing interests range from academic essays to novels, to short stories, and he has a keen interest in photography, where he has had several photographs in juried exhibitions. Dr. Zeppetello is presently working on another novel and a collection of short stories.
