Chris Hinds

Chris Hinds

My name is Chris Hinds and I am a third semester graduate student here at ASU. I earned a BA in English Literature from Texas Tech University in December of 2010. I prefer the Brits to the Americans when it comes to most forms of literature. John Donne is my favorite poet, but overall I would say that H.G. Wells is my favorite author.

Alex Hopkins

Alex Hopkins

My name is Alexandra Hopkins and I am a graduate student here at Angelo State University. I received my BA in English from ASU in May of 2011. I plan on eventually getting my doctorate in English so that I can teach English at the collegiate level. Though I like all genres of literature and love to learn as much as I can about each, I find myself fonder of American Literature. I am also more into fiction works than non-fiction or poetry, but I have an appreciation for all outlets of literature and creativity. I also crave the knowledge to at least understand the different genres of literature even if they are not my favorite to read. My biggest career goal, besides attaining a doctorate in English, is to get published. Though I have had a piece published here at ASU in the Oasis Literary Magazine, I am working on being recognized on a bigger scale of that goal and will continue to see where English takes me.

Jenni Jackson

Jenni Jackson

Prior to working on my Masters Degree in English at ASU, I worked on and completed a Bachelors Degree in English at ASU. I also studied French as an undergraduate. The literature classes offered at ASU are interesting; however, it is the grammar and non-literature classes that I find most interesting and enjoyable. As an undergraduate, I taught and tutored math, biology, English, and French. I am working on a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in addition to the M.A. in English. I plan on teaching full time at the junior high or high school level starting this fall.

Will McClure
