Robbin Zeff Warner holds a PhD in Folklore and American Studies from Indiana University and a BA in Anthropology from Berkeley. Her background in folklore has taught her that the basis of good writing in any field is story. Her interest in the teaching of writing started through her involvement with the National Writing Project in 1993. Over the past 30 years she has taught writing at universities on two continents, participated in summer writing workshops for youth and adult writing, and led training academies. She has led writing seminars and developed online writing courses and resources for universities, business, and government agencies. Her interest in online technology was launched when she wrote the landmark book The Nonprofit Guide to the Internet in 1996 when the number of nonprofits online was only in the double digits. She then wrote the first book on online advertising in 1997, Advertising on the Internet, which was translated into 6 languages. Robbin is the author of 6 books and dozens of book chapters and articles. She has also published restaurant and chocolate shop reviews, written speeches and presentations for government officials and business executives, and developed research reports for businesses, agencies, and think tanks. Robbin enjoys writing fiction and is a trained chocolatier.
