English and art students honored at TIPA conference

Posted April 16, 2012

Students from ACU's English and art departments were recently honored by the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association (TIPA) for various student works and for The Shinnery Review, ACU's student-led and produced art and literary magazine. The magazine and other works were honored at TIPA's annual conference held March 29-31 in Corpus Christi.

English student Marshall Fox ('12) won first place for his short story titled "Infinite Spaces." Bethany Bradshaw, a 2011 graduate, placed second with her poem, "Independence." The Shinnery Review received second in overall excellence and honorable mention for its cover design. Art student Katie Stumbo ('13) received honorable mention for her illustration "Rhythm."

Assistant professor of English Steven Moore feels these honors are well deserved. "I love working with The Shinnery Review," he says. "All the students on the staff inspire me inside and outside of the classroom. The entire English department is proud of these students. Fox and Bradshaw are fantastic writers; they know how to chisel beautiful and captivating words. I am delighted to see them recognized not only for their talent, but also for the way they represent ACU."
