Sarah Austin, Vani Kannon, and Megan Lemming have been named winners of the “English Department Graduate Student Professional Development in Composition & Writing Theory and Pedagogy Travel Funding” for Spring 2013.
I was very fortunate to receive grant funds from the English Department to present at a conference this past March. Below is a brief statement of my activities and use of the grant funds. The experience was unparalleled and I truly appreciate the receipt of such funds to offset the cost of such an amazing professional endeavor. Thank You! Sarah Austin MA-Rhet/Comp
