In addition to her teaching, Spring works with the Department of English’s Professional Writing program at Winthrop.
Her current research includes two projects that seek to better understand the relationship between writer and text: a qualitative study of how undergraduate students see themselves as writers and an assessment of graduate writing groups at Texas A&M University’s Writing Center.
