Clinton Spaulding attended the University of Maine, Orono as an undergraduate and received a BA in English with a Creative Writing Concentration while working as President of the Maine Peace Action Committee for two years. After serving on the USS Devastator in the U.S. Navy, he returned to Orono for graduate work and earned an MA in English focusing on Poetics and successfully defended his creative thesis titled "A Lamentation in Blue and White". Clinton’s work has been published in issues of The Stolen Island Review, Werewolf Glue, the MPAC newsletter, Crosscut, the Accompanist and was featured at the bi-annual &Now Conference at SUNY Buffalo where his collaborative, multi media project, "Furrows in a Ploughed Field", was presented.

Teaching predominantly first year students at Husson is a real unique experience for me. I am able to interact with students from each and every discipline Husson has to offer. Through the writing classes I teach, especially the Rhetoric classes, I am able to set students up with ever important writing skills for their careers as well as offering an opportunity for my students to learn valuable skills for their everyday lives. Primarily, critical thinking skills. I stress the importance of critical thinking in the classroom and encourage my students to truly engage with their language and the language of argument where and when they encounter it. Everywhere, everyday.
