Alum Andrea Horbinski Teaching at Sirens 2018

Alum Andrea Horbinski will be teaching at the Sirens 2018 workshop week, preceding the annual conference! Sirens is a revolutionary conference dedicated to the remarkable, diverse women of fantasy literature — a community that includes readers, scholars, librarians, educators, publishing professionals, and authors. In its tenth year, Sirens this year is focusing on reunion.

Andrea will be presenting: "Taking the Off-Ramp: Strategies and Practices for Changing Careers (Especially for Academics)." From the website:

Changing careers is an increasingly common reality, especially for academics confronting the facts of increasing job competition and shrinking tenure track opportunities. In this workshop, we’ll discuss strategies for deciding whether—and on what terms—you should stay in your chosen career, and talk about some of the opportunities and challenges of leveraging experience in one industry for job opportunities in another. We’ll also discuss some practices that will help you in your career advancement no matter what track you choose.
