B.A. in English (Plymouth State University), M.F.A. in Popular Fiction (USM Stonecoast), C.A.G.S. in Educational Leadership (Plymouth State University)


Sean Robinson is a Teaching Lecturer at Plymouth State University, coming onboard after a chance discussion with the head of the department, with three days to organize his first Composition class, which took place in the same classroom he’d taken Comp in ten years before. Sean’s most frequently published work is science fiction and fantasy, but his publications have also included poetry and nonfiction.

Academically, Sean is interested in representation in popular fiction, which has led to papers analyzing Marvel Comics, and the works of Tolkien and Lewis, which he’s presented at Dartmouth College, UC Berkley, and abroad. Beyond this, he’s interested in the idea of place, and how place impacts writing.  This research has included grant-funded trips to Ireland and Italy, as well as the Pacific Northwest.

When not teaching or writing, you can find him travelling abroad, or at home playing with his dogs in the Upper Valley of New Hampshire.
