conversations in academic writing
Ben Orlando teaches Advanced Composition in the classroom and online. Currently he’s researching the benefits of building dialogues in academic writing. He’s also working with colleagues to create a live forum where instructors can come together and share their knowledge and experiences. As a creative writer, Ben recently placed second in the Bath International Novel Competition. This year his short stories have been published in The Tusculum Review and Landfall: The Best New England Crime Stories, 2018. One of Ben’s favorite activities is riding his bike between George Mason and his home in Arlington, VA.
