Pens, Ink, and Rhetoric


Submitted by syntaxfactory on October 14, 2014 - 2:17pm


Hi,

I've been exchanging messages on Facebook about pens. So let me ask here:

1. Do you use a specific pen for any part of your writing or professional life?
1a. If so, what kind of pen? Is there a story behind that choice of pen?
1b. Do you use more than one pen?
1c. How do you use these pens?

2. Do you use a colored ink for any part of your writing or professional life?
1a. If so, what colors? Is there a story behind that choice of colors?
1b. How do you use these colors?

The College of William & Mary is searching for a tenure-track Assistant Professor for their Modern Languages department. PhD required, two PhDs preferred. Although there is a strong internal candidate, we are more than happy to vote that person out if we can pay you less money.
