Jennifer Browne is the Director of the Frostburg State University Center for the Literary Arts. She began teaching college-level composition and literature courses in 1997 at Garrett College, which fostered her  interest in advocacy for underprepared and educationally-disadvantaged students, an interest that was enhanced while she served as Director of the Upward Bound Program at Potomac State College of West Virginia University, a federally-funded educational-opportunity program for low-income and first-generation high school students.  Upon joining the faculty of Frostburg State University in 2008, she returned to teaching, focusing on the needs of developing writers, who frequently describe her as “passionate,” “knowledgeable,” and “boring.”

In addition to issues of educational access, Jennifer is interested in gender, ecology, and popular culture, which she investigates in her own writing.  She has published poetry in The Peninsula Review, Maryland Poetry Review, American Writing: A Magazine, Backbone Mountain Review, and The Potomac, among others. 

Within the community, she serves on the Advisory Boards of CASA and WFWM Radio.
