Beth Burnett may not like to wear pants, but she wears an awful lot of hats. The Director of Education for GCLS, Beth also teaches comp for Johnston Community College, Intro to the MFA for Southern New Hampshire University, and craft of writing for the GCLS writing academy. Because she enjoys torture, Beth returned to grad school for her second Masters, this time in Marketing and New Media. In addition to her penchant for education, both as a teacher and a student, Beth is a writer with six published books (one under her pen name, E.A. Van Stralen) and stories in several recent anthologies. In her spare time, she sleeps in thirteen-minute increments, walks her geriatric dog, and has video cooking dates with her long-distance wife.
