Caitlin Downs is an instructor in the Liberal Arts Department at PCA&D and creative writer based out of Lancaster City. She is an active literary citizen who participates in live storytelling and publishes poems that have appeared in literary magazines and anthologies in both the US and UK. As a multi-disciplinary artist, she is perpetually looking for new ways to combine her love of visual art and the written word. Currently, she is working on a project that curates original poems presented as artifacts modeled after those used in healing arts practices.

Teaching Philosophy: I aim to bridge learning gaps, give my students individualized attention, and help each student to write more confidently and competently.
