Learning the craft of writing from a professional writer
Budding writers who come to Marianopolis College may study with acclaimed Young Adult author and widely published journalist Monique Polak. The long-time Marianopolis English and Humanities professor is a success story in the highly competitive Young Adult fiction market as well as an award-winner.
The author of 15 novels, she teaches several popular courses at the College, including The Stuff of Nonsense, in which students explore a wide variety of examples of nonsense, from jokes to nonsense literature and film, to surrealistic paintings.
A Marianopolis graduate, Professor Polak also publishes an interesting blog.
