Penn, Steven, Instructor of English
I enjoy reading and writing fiction and non-fiction and have done editing work as well. I am especially interested in Southern Fiction and issues of family and genealogy. I am also a real estate broker and former businessman and interested in all aspects and forms of commerce.
BioI joined the MSU English Department as a fulltime Instructor in 1999. Mostly, I teach Writing, instructing students in both Internet and traditional methods. I am a seventh generation Kentuckian, my family moving to Frankfort in 1791, where I also grew up. My degrees, undergraduate and graduate, were completed at the University of Kentucky. I have also taught at UK and currently reside in Lexington near campus. I have three children, two still in school and at home, who help me relate to my own students.
