moving to houston

So I just got off the phone with Dr. Wyman Herendeen, chair of the English Department at the University of Houston. He called to offer me one of five positions in their newly created Writing Fellows Program, which is "for writing instructors interested in joining a cohort of teachers and scholars committed to the theory and practice of writing pedagogy." For more info, go here.

Anyhow, I'm very happy. It's a 2 year fellowship with a 4/4 teaching load and opportunities for researching and developing theory, practice, etc.

I'll call tomorrow to accept his offer.

The job search has ended for now (and I can attend Sewanee). The rest of the summer, I'll be working in the Writing Center here at Mason and moving to Houston - classes start August 25th.
