Becca Hawkins is a soon-to-be graduate of Hope College with a BA in Art Education. She grew up in in the middle of the Northern Michigan woods, but swears it made no impact on her social capabilities.
She enjoys writing linked short stories — with inspiration from Junot Diaz, Lorrie Moore, and Ernest Hemingway — and has dabbled in everything from ghazals to novels to editorials to illustrated storybooks.
In her recent Senior Art Exhibition, she illustrated anonymous responses to the Hemingway’s charge: “write the truest sentence that you know.” Out of the pieces, she created a digital book entitled, Two Truths.
She is most excited to never be snowed into her house nor use four wheel drive for the next three years.
