Lee Skallerup Bessette

Lee Skallerup Bessette grew up Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Her undergraduate degree is in Professional Writing from the Unversité de Sherbrooke and her MA is in Comparative Canadian Literature from the same. Her Ph.D. is from the University of Alberta in Comparative Literature. Her academic interests are varied: postcolonial speculative fiction, contemporary Haitian literature, translation studies, and life writing. She primarily teaches writing, and thus is also interested in pedagogy, non-traditional learners, and the integration of technology and social media in the classroom. Having taught in two Canadian provinces and three States, both on and off the tenure-track, she writes about issues currently facing higher education, women, and the ever-expanding contingent labor force as well. In her free time, she is also trying to branch out as an Edupreneur.

Lee is a member of the editorial collective at University of Venus. You can also visit her blog at collegereadywriting.blogspot.com and follow her on Twitter (@readywriting). She can be reached by email at lee.bessette@gmail.com.
