Author Introduction: Erin E. Templeton

readingIn this introductory post you’ll learn about one of the newest ProfHacker authors, Erin E. Templeton.

Erin E. Templeton is an Assistant Professor of English at Converse College, a women’s liberal arts college in Spartanburg, South Carolina. There she teaches American literature, twentieth-century British and Irish literature, and composition.

  • For Crying Out Loud (on emotional students)

…to professional topics such as:
