While I was rehearsing my talk (“What’s Good and Relational about the Craft and Art of Writing?”) for tonight’s (4/1) “Creative Writing Awards Ceremony,” two #IRSC Campus Deans and one Provost walked in my office this morning at 11:48 am to surprise me with this award.
I am in tears, but filled with joy.
I want to take the time to thank my colleagues in the English and Communications Department at IRSC, and the school’s administration and the IRSC community for this award. In particular, I would like to thank my students for believing in me. You continue to inspire me to learn, teach, research, and improve myself every day. I am because of you, and We are because We belong together.
