About This Publication
Reflections from T-Bridge is the class publication for English 492, Senior Seminar in Writing, offered at Heidelberg during Fall 2004.
The major writing projects published here represent the culmination of these students' writing careers at Heidelberg.
This year's publication features a solid slate of creative writing, though two of the pieces are more accurately labeled semi-autobiography.
Other than formatting the text for the website, the editor takes no responsibility for the writing published here.
If you'd like to find out more about this publication or about writing at Heidelberg University, feel free to contact Dave Kimmel, Associate Professor of English.
Sean Bacon is a senior(ish) English writing major with an emphasis in public relations. He enjoys reading, writing, and spending time with his close friends. Bacon’s projected date of graduation is May of 2006. The collection of Bacon’s poems included in the publication is a compilation of bittersweet love poems focusing on reality more than the idealist concept of love itself. Happy reading!
