english creative writing faculty news

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about the projects that several English and Creative Writing for Entertainment faculty members have been working on, and wanted to share the details. Check out some of their recent achievements below:

  • English Department Manager Danita Berg and English Composition Course Director Stephen Mills have started an online literary project called Animal: A Beast of a Literary Magazine. The site features essays, stories, and poems that capture the essence of being beast-like. The inaugural issue went live earlier this month.
  • Also, Stephen‘s newest book of poetry was recently ranked #24 on the contemporary poetry bestseller list compiled by The Poetry Foundation.
  • Creative Writing faculty member Tof Eklund was part of a roundtable episode of “The Comics Alternative” podcast, where he discussed the world of comics fandom with the show’s hosts and other comic book experts.
  • Dr. Douglas Texter, Literature Criticism and Analytical Thinking Course Director, had his alternate history story, “AD 1929,” published in the magazine Alt Hist: A Magazine of Historical and Alternate History.
  • One of the films created in Christopher Ramsey‘s Visual Thinking and Writing course, Living with Lycanthropy, was recently screened at the Independent Film Quarterly Film and Webisode Festival in Hollywood and was an official selection of HorrorFind Weekend 2012. It was directed by student Charles Martin Kline.
