This school in Pennsylvania has one of the most vibrant rhetoric departments in the nation. I spent a week there as Writer in Residence, and gave a campus-wide talk on persuasion.

York has asked me back. I will be writer in residence in spring of 2018.

My book, Thank You for Arguing, is used in many college rhetoric courses (as well as AP English classes), and frequently lecture on campuses. If you're an educator who has adopted one of my books as a text, I offer free phone-ins or Skype sessions. I love interacting with students. To learn more, contact me.
