Sean Michael Morris (@slamteacher) is the self-proclaimed Head Hare-brain behind Digital Writing Month. A long-time fan, five-time winner of NaNoWriMo, Sean believes heartily in writing with abandon and recklessness. Sean is part of the faculty of EDH, a writer at Hybrid Pedagogy, a recovering advertising executive, a once and future psychic, and a confessed World of Warcraft player and Renaissance Festival attendee. He is currently at work on a novel, and will be teaching the ENG 340: Writing for Contemporary Media — Digital Composition class at Marylhurst in January 2013.
Jesse Stommel (@Jessifer) is the Director of the Marylhurst University English and Digital Humanities (EDH) degree program, the home of Digital Writing Month. He is also the co-founder and managing editor for Hybrid Pedagogy, an online journal of teaching and technology. He teaches courses about fun stuff like zombies, horror film, American literature, hypertext, electronic literature, and haptic interfaces. His favorite book is Moby Dick, and his favorite film is Night of the Living Dead. His courses experiment with new ways to radically re-envision how we think about and produce media by emphasizing new forms of mass-collaboration. Through his work with the EDH program, he is pioneering approaches to student interaction in digital space. He’s also good friends with a certain duck.
