Happy News About My Teaching Future

As many of you are aware, for the past academic year, I've been serving as a full-time visiting assistant professor of electronic media, at the University of Cincinnati.

When I signed up for the gig, I knew it was only for a year—but of course I hoped that if it was a good fit, I could stay longer.

And so I'm honored and thrilled to announce that I've been officially appointed as a full-time assistant professor. I'll continue teaching UC's e-media majors a mix of writing, production, and media theory courses.

Not much changes as far as the work I do here at No Rules—or my contributions to Writer's Digest—but I wanted to share my happy news with you all.

P.S. If you know students headed to college who are interested in multimedia storytelling, the future of media/journalism, or media production work, then they should check out the e-media major at UC!
