Get It Write

Nancy Tuten
Columbia, SC, USA

I have more than three decades of experience teaching writing skills to college students and to professionals in the workplace. Since 1991, I've offered professional development training for judges and staff members of state and federal court systems, bankers, attorneys, and employees of state and federal agencies. (Here is my client list.) For years, Writer's Digest has named Get It Write as one of the best online resources for writers.

From 1988 to 2019, I taught writing, literature, theory, and grammar—first at the University of South Carolina, where I served as associate director for the freshman composition program, and then at Columbia College (SC), where I served as director of the writing-across-the-curriculum program for fifteen years and as dean of the Division of Communication, Languages, and Literature for nine years. In 1996, I was named Outstanding Professor by the South Atlantic Association of Departments of English.

My undergraduate degree is from Newberry College (1982, magna cum laude), and I earned both an MA (1985) and a PhD (1988) from the University of South Carolina. I have published two scholarly books—Critical Essays on Galway Kinnell and The Robert Frost Encyclopedia—and numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals on such writers as Alice Walker, Theodore Roethke, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, and Galway Kinnell. From 1991 to 2006, I was a consulting editor for The Explicator, an internationally distributed scholarly journal of literary criticism.
