New Article and Other Updates

So despite my great hopes of posting more in the blogosphere post-dissertation, this full-time faculty thing tends to keep me pretty busy.

However, I managed to find time to write and publish a non-academic feature article for catapult magazine recently, so I thought I'd mention it.

In other news, I've been having a ton of fun talking with my students in bits and pieces about writing and writing processes, language, and other related things in the midst of my teaching this semester of speech communication, communication theory, and interpersonal communication. I love having opportunities to have these discussions with my lovely students.

In all I don't mind so much that it's a season of teaching and grading and grading and grading and busyness. Other seasons will come again for more heavy writing activity. In the meantime I get to read a lot of what my students have to say, and I enjoy that much of the time.

Congratulations on finishing your Ph.D.! I have just come upon your blog. I teach mostly English - comp, literature, and occasionally creative writing, at a university too. I've been teaching there 12 years - a course load of 3 and 3, but I don't have a Ph.D. so I am a very long term adjunct. I'm old enough to not care; very glad not to have to do all the committee work . I don't have much time to post on my own blog during the semesters, but right now I can.
Hope you will keep writing here!

Best wishes from Anne
