TLAR Editor

Michael Frizell is the Director of Student Learning Services at Missouri State University. In this position, he helped lead a team that developed the Bear CLAW (Center for Learning and Writing), growing it from a standalone Writing Center to a dynamic modern learning center. Since 2021, he has served as the editor of The Learning Assistance Review, the peer-reviewed journal of the International College Learning Center Association. He also edited the book Learning Centers in the 21st Century. During the height of the COVID-19 crisis, Frizell collected the stories of learning center leaders across the country into the book Rising to the Challenge: Navigating COVID-19 as Higher Education Learning Center Leaders. He has been ICLCA's corresponding secretary as president twice. He is also on the editorial team for RiLADE and serves as Vice Chair of the Council of Learning and Developmental Education Associations. In addition, he is an ICLCA Certified Learning Center Professional, Level IV (Lifetime), and a newly-appointed CLADEA Fellow. He is a prolific speaker, presenting hundreds of workshops and informative speeches, guest-starring in podcasts, radio and television shows, and more. As a writer for TidalWave Comics, he has written over 100 comic books based on famous people. Recent publications include biographies of Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Selena, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Travis Kelce, and Stacey Abrams. His fiction work includes Stormy Daniels: Space Force and The Fantasy World of Bettie Page, featuring the authorized likenesses of the actresses. Frizell's graphic novel Bender (now out of print) explored the backstory of America's first serial killer family from the Midwest. It was serialized in Saddlebag Dispatches magazine, collected in 2018 in one volume, and featured on many true crime podcasts. Last year, he was featured on All Things Considered for his comic book biography of basketball player Brittney Griner.
