Meet Donna, L'18

Donna Brewer, Associate Professor of English | Winchester, TN

Since earning her MA at the School of Letters, Donna now shepherds college students through everyone from Shakespeare to Twain. She was awarded a fellowship from the English-Speaking Union of Nashville to study at Shakespeare's Globe in London and has presented at the Shakespeare Association of America conference. But the School of Letters did more than hone Donna's academic writing. "I had never flexed my creative muscles in the literary realm until Sewanee. Suddenly, everything seemed possible, surrounded by eager students and expert faculty to sharpen my efforts and challenge me to test my boundaries." Donna is working on her first memoir.
