More About the Author

Stephanie Vanderslice's essays have been included in books and journals such as Creative Writing Studies, New Writing, Profession, Teaching Creative Writing and The Creative Writing Handbook. Her prose has also appeared in Mothers in All But Name, Knowing Pains: Women on Love, Sex and Work in their 40's and many others. With Kelly Ritter, she edited Can It Really Be Taught?: Resisting Lore in the Teaching of Creative Writing (Heinemann, 2007), and wrote Teaching Creative Writing to Undergraduates: A Resource and Guide, (Fountainhead Press 2011). Her most recent book, Rethinking Creative Writing: Programs and Practices that Work (Professional and Higher), has been hailed as brave, iconoclastic and entertaining.

Stephanie also blogs about creative writing, books and academia at The Huffington post as well as at wordamour.wordpress.com, a blog about reading, writing, and teaching writing with a little 21st century family life thrown in. She holds a BA from Connecticut College, an MFA from George Mason University and a Ph.D. from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette and is associate professor of writing at the University of Central Arkansas. Recommended reads include Nicole Krauss's Great House, Jhumpa Lahiri's Unaccustomed Earth, and Jesse Lee Kercheval's The Museum of Happiness. Stephanie lives in Conway, Arkansas with her husband, writer John Vanderslice (no, not the indie songster) and two sons.
