According to Edward Rielly, “A lifelong interest in writing led me to
create the Writing and Publishing major. The program builds on writing courses
that I have taught for years and leads students into the world of publishing
(and often their first publishing credits). Both teaching and writing give me
great personal satisfaction.” Professor Rielly has been a member of the English
Department since 1978, and is a former dean of the distance education at Saint
Joseph’s College. Outside of work, he enjoys reading, gardening, and writing.
