As Prose Editor of the 2016 and 2017 Salmon Creek Journal, Tyler evaluated and edited literary pieces from students, faculty, and alumni of WSU Vancouver.

Writing Consultant

Washington State University Vancouver Writing Center

For one and a half years, Tyler worked with students of WSU Vancouver on the development of their writing skills. Rather than providing a line-editing service, as a consultant he took a hollistic approach to the writing process, focusing on skill-building rather than assessment and promoting an environment in line with a professional learning community (PLC).
