PITT-BRADFORD INSTRUCTOR’S POEMS TO BE PUBLISHED IN LITERARY JOURNALS

INSTRUCTOR’S POEMS TO BE PUBLISHED

BRADFORD, Pa. – Poems by Judy Hopkins, an adjunct writing instructor at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, have been accepted for publication in two literary journals.

Her poem titled “How We Once Moved” appears in the current issue of California Quarterly, a poetry journal sponsored by the California State Poetry Society.

“This poem is a contemporary take on the concept of ekphrasis, or the ‘stilled movement’ of art objects,” Hopkins explained.

The other poem titled “The Over-Ripe Imagination of Buckle-Up Country” will appear in an upcoming issue of Timber Creek Review, a quarterly journal.

“‘Buckle-Up Country’ is a term I made up about this area of the map,” Hopkins said. “It’s not flyover country but not the destination either. It’s about how ‘place’ can spark imagination.”

Hopkins holds a bachelor of arts degree in English from Dickinson College in Carlisle and a master’s degree in English from Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., where she taught English.

Hopkins has also taught at various colleges in the Los Angeles area and St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, N.Y.

Since 2001, she has taught composition at Pitt-Bradford, where she also teaches news writing, news editing and courses in public relations.
