The Ohio State University at Newark


Shawna Green

I have been teaching writing at The Ohio State University, Newark campus since 2003. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems and a Master of Arts degree in English. Prior to obtaining my MA degree and becoming a writing instructor, I worked as a systems engineer for Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and then as a software developer for AT & T. My early working career was spent developing and testing software for both commercial and scientific applications. The distance, though, between the sciences and the literary was not as cavernous as I first imagined, and I have found a happy home in the classroom and with my own creative nonfiction work.
