robin ware(Bluefield)—A scholarly article written by Dr. Robin Ware, Bluefield State College Beckley Campus Coordinator, has been published in the Virginia English Journal.

The article, “Living, Learning, Teaching (with) Language:  An Idiolectical Autobiography of a Lawn Guylander,” was published in the Virginia English Journal’s Vol. 62, Number 2.  “One of the greatest achievements in academia, after receiving one’s doctorate, is getting an article published in a peer-reviewed journal,” Dr. Ware noted.  “I wrote this autobiography about how some people react when hearing my ‘Lawn Guyland/Long Island’ accent.  I hope that this essay will help non-New Yorkers be kinder to those of us who are out of our element!”

The Virginia English Journal is the Virginia Association of Teachers of English refereed journal.  It is published twice each year, and contains articles of interest to teachers of English, those who teach teachers of English, and others concerned with the teaching of English.
