Limestone University Professor of English Erin Pushman recently presented at two different national conferences.
At the Conference of College Composition and Communication (CCCC), Pushman collaborated with writing studies colleagues from around the country to offer perspectives on creative nonfiction in writing studies during a workshop. At the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP), she joined a panel of diverse, nonfiction authors from across the country, all who write for Mutha magazine, to read and discuss their works.
“It's always exciting to engage in scholarship and creative work on a national level,” Pushman said. “Part of being a good professor is participating in the wider conversation and writing of a discipline, and then bringing that engagement back into the classroom. I was particularly honored at CCCC to work alongside an influential scholar of writing studies and at AWP to give a reading of my work with other authors whose work has helped shift the way we read and write about mothering.”
Pushman's book How to Read Like a Writer: 10 Lessons to Elevate Your Reading and Writing Practice is now available for those who look to improve their writing skills. It is available for purchase wherever books are sold and through Amazon and other websites in hardcover and paperback. It is also available in digital format.
Her essays appear in various literary, writing studies, and parenting magazines. Alongside being a professor of English, Pushman is the Director of Limestone’s Writing Center, and is also the editor of The Candelabra, the University’s literary and art magazine.
