William Jablonsky received an MFA in Creative Writing from Bowling Green State University. While Professor Jablonsky’s main focus is fiction writing, he teaches a wide variety of courses at Loras. In addition to the introductory and advanced fiction workshops, he also offers courses in screenwriting, genre fiction writing (specializing in science fiction, fantasy and horror) and a May term course focused on finishing your work and sending it to potential publishers.

More recently, Professor Jablonsky taught a course on deconstructionist superhero stories (that is, ones that break the traditional four-color, black-and-white mold). He is the author of a magical realist story collection, The Indestructible Man and a steampunk novel, The Clockwork Man.
