How do you get out of the black hole of casual/sessional teaching? You need to make enough money to survive – so you take on many classes. That effectively becomes a full-time job, so when do you have time to read / write / publish so you can be competitive with all the people going for the entry-level academic jobs? You’re up against people who have had post-docs and in some cases people who have already had fixed-term academic jobs.
