Larry is always glad to meet with students on any topic related to writing: essays, résumés, applications and personal statements, research papers, speeches, class reading assignments, editing (grammar, punctuation, and style), and creative writing—poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.

He’s written four college textbooks, all dealing with good writing: The Basics Book, The Editing Book, The Less-Is-More Handbook: A Guide to College Writing, and Approaches to Critical Thinking and Writing: Close-Reading the Arts.
