About the Author

Andrea A. Lunsford is the former director of the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at Stanford University and teaches at the Bread Loaf School of English. A past chair of CCCC, she has won the major publication awards in both the CCCC and MLA. For Bedford/St. Martin's, she is also the author of The St. Martin's Handbook, The Everyday Writer, and Writing in Action; Everything's an Argument with John Ruszkiewicz; and Everything's an Argument with Readings with John Ruszkiewicz and Keith Walters. She has never met a student she didn’t like—and she is excited about the possibilities for writers in the “literacy revolution” brought about by today’s technology. She posts regularly on the Macmillan Community site about her teaching, reading, and traveling, and her “Multimodal Mondays” posts offer ideas for introducing low-stakes multimodal assignments to the composition classroom. You can also follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
