Writing the Personal: Getting Your Stories onto the Page (Sense Publishers, 2016)
Sandra L. Faulkner and Sheila Squillante
Here’s the inaugural book in the new Teaching Writing series. This series publishes user-friendly writing guides penned by authors with publishing records in their subject matter. Through detailed exercises, exemplars, and a breakdown of the key elements and considerations of personal writing, Faulkner and Squillante provide a lively introduction and guide for writers to the art and craft of personal writing. Their conversational tone about audience, point of view, form, structure, ethics, research, and finding and making time for writing practice is a not-to-miss primer and reference. This book is appropriate for classes focused on poetry, creative nonfiction, ethnography, qualitative research, memoir, narrative inquiry, and other types of life writing, as well as individual writers honing their craft. Writing the Personal invites us all to find our stories and instructs us how to shape them for an audience and for ourselves.

Dr. Radhika Gajjala, Professor in Communication Department and the American Culture Program at BGSU will be heading Norway (University of Bergen) on Fulbright Professorship for the AY 2015-2-16.

She will bring these two topics together in the context of Postcolonial Science and Technology studies and Digital Media/Cultures Research. She will also be co-teaching courses offered through University of Bergen on topics such as Digital Culture, Information Society, History and Philosophy of Computer Technologies, and Gender and Game Studies.
