My name is Beth Eakman Re and I teach in the English Writing and Rhetoric major. I specialize in courses with practical and professional applications, such as Grant Writing, Magazine Writing, Humor Writing, and Entertainment Journalism. My students regularly publish articles they've written in these classes and win funding for local charitable organizations with their grant proposals. I have two websites. This one is for my SEU courses. Please feel free to look around syllabi and assignments. This one is for my creative work and features links to some of my publications.

Professor Eakman has taught at SEU since 2006 and has experience as a professional and creative writer in a wide variety of genres, including technical manuals, creative non-fiction essays, and scripts for children's television.
