Dalyn Luedtke

  • Associate Professor
  • Director, Center for Writing


Dalyn Luedtke received her B.A. in literature and writing with an emphasis on writing from California State University-San Marcos and her Ph.D. in rhetoric, composition, and the teaching of English from the University of Arizona.

Her dissertation research focused on the reality show “Survivor” and how fans produce their own texts in response. She continues to study fan-generated writing in order to gain insight into self-motivated writing and the creative remixing of popular texts. Her teaching, research, and service all focus on the teaching of writing—specifically, innovative pedagogical practices, the use of technology, and assignment design—across curricula and contexts.  

Prof. Luedtke created and currently directs the Center for Writing, where she leads a staff of 8-10 cross-disciplinary peer coaches through the process of supporting Norwich’s writers, developing original research projects, and conducting meaningful outreach. She teaches courses in composition, advanced composition, professional and technical writing, digital writing, rhetorical criticism, and television and media criticism. When she is not thinking about all-things-writing, you can find her on the tennis court or on top of a little mountain in Central Vermont tending to her chickens and garden.
