I'm teaching two courses this summer, both good. In my creative nonfiction writing class, they are producing good work and writing along with them forced me to start on a memoir book project. That won't show up here, becasue it is realy a book, not the episodic thing that would chunk out into column-like chapters. … Continue reading Advice to an advocacy student writer
As it turned out, The Computers and Writing conference really did what they could to allow me to get around with my very limited mobility. The kind people at St. John Fisher College found a golf cart and ferried me from building to building, so I got to the panels and the events, but the … Continue reading After the conference
I really should be excited about going to Computers and Writing, and a part of me still is. It is the absolute best conference for people like me who are obsessed with rhetoric, composition studies, and all things digital. However, this time I am feeling a bit anxious because of how hard it is to … Continue reading Conference Fear
As usual, I hate how I look in photos and video, but this is a good interview video, taken at the Digital Media and Composition Institute. I wholeheartedly recommend their summer institute for any writing teacher who seeks more innovative teaching in 21st century literacies.

I expect to be depressed, because there is porbably no more insular blogger than me. I write what I write for my own needs and have … Continue reading Housekeeping post
Here is the secret to the photography habit: wear Google Glass every day. On the days I did not wear Glass--usually because the frames are not very flattering and my regular frames really are flattering--I lived through a series of moments, never predictable, when I would wish I was wearing Glass so that I could … Continue reading Google Glass and Project 365
Look what came in today's mail! Here is my contributor's copy of Weave Magazine issue 11. Two poems!
Living so close to St. Louis, the outrageous denial of reporters' right to photograph and record in public shocked me to the core. As a participant in Project 365, I think about what is permissible and what is not as a photographer and a videographer. As one who wears Google Glass, I feel I am … Continue reading Photographer’s rights
