    Spotlight on Reading/Writing: Clif Smith

    The TODAY’s Spotlight on Reading/Writing features CSU-Pueblo faculty and staff sharing their reading and writing experiences. The column is co-sponsored by the English and Foreign Languages Department and the English Club. This week’s feature highlights Clif Smith.

    Name: Clif Smith

    csmith.jpgUniversity position: Adjunct instructor, English

    Educational background: MA, Adams State College in Alamosa; BS, Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas

    Favorite book of all time: Too tough, but I’ll say “Billy Budd” by John Milton

    Favorite guilty reading pleasure (easy, “beach” read): Kinky Friedman, Carl Hiaasen, Jeffrey Deaver and local/area history

    Favorite quote: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Your greatest writing success and how you accomplished it: A paper in a Humanities class on a comparison of Tchiakovsky and the French National Anthem — I accomplished the task by doing research and listening to music over and over!

    Your most challenging writing experience and how you tackled it: Master’s degree research project — step by step organized research

    What are you currently reading? Mainly things for my classes.
