Dr. Candis Bond earned her MA and PhD in English from Saint Louis University, where she studied British Modernism. She completed her BA at Loyola University in Chicago, where she majored in English and Creative Writing. During graduate school, Dr. Bond worked in three St. Louis area writing centers, which led her to pursue writing center consulting as a career.
At Augusta University, Dr. Bond serves as the director of the writing center and teaches courses in Writing Center Theory and Practice, Composition, and Women's and Gender Studies. She loves working with students in all disciplines, but has particular expertise in scientific writing, writing in the health sciences, and providing graduate-level writing support. Dr. Bond is happy to assist students on any project at any stage in the process, but she especially enjoys working with graduate students on longer-term assignments such as capstones, theses, and dissertations.

PRAXIS: A WRITING CENTER JOURNAL online
Augusta University's writing center has changed in some exciting ways since I last worked there in 2012. When I learned that AU had created a satellite campus at AU's Health Sciences campus, I had to get in touch with Dr. Candis Bond about featuring the center on the Axis blog. Dr. Bond has graciously agreed to share about her experience directing the center and tell us about the center itself. If you're interested in having your writing center featured on the Axis blog, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This article discusses D.H. Lawrence's depictions of pregnancy in The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. I connect Lawrence's representations to the author's self-professed theories of subjectivity and embodiment, as well as to wider cultural contexts such as procreation, childbirth, and the reproductive rights movement.
