My name is Lauren Winton and I’m in my first year in the Written Communication program. I am a graduate assistant, and I teach first-year writing and work in the University Writing Center. Before my time here at Eastern, I worked as a Business Process Optimization Analyst for an insurance company in Atlanta. I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Science, Technology and Culture in 2013.
I’m excited to be in the Written Communication program, and I’ve already met many wonderful people during my time here. I hope to work as a technical writer in the non-academic professional world once I graduate.
Visual rhetoric seems like an interesting topic. I think the implications of having a foundational understanding of visual rhetoric will be nothing but practical in the workplace. As a technical communicator, visual rhetoric is an essential course for my knowledge repertoire.
I’m looking forward to a great semester with everyone!
All the best,
