About the author (2005)

SUSAN ANKER (B.A., M.Ed, Boston University) taught English and developmental writing for several years before entering college publishing, where she worked for 18 years: as a sales representative and English/ESL editor at Macmillan Publishing Company; as developmental English/ESL editor, executive editor, and editor in chief at St. Martin's Press; and as editor in chief for humanities at Houghton Mifflin Company. In each of these positions, she worked with developmental writing instructors, maintaining her early interest in the area. Anker and her husband are the principals of Anker Publishing Company, which publishes professional development materials for higher education instructors and administrators. Her many years of experience talking and working with hundreds of developmental writing instructors across the country, and developing textbooks that meet the needs of these instructors and their students, have culminated in Real Writing and Real Essays.
