Becky Bosshart, UNLV ’14 MFA Creative Writing and UNR ’02 BA Journalism, joined the U.S. Small Business Administration in January at its Washington, DC headquarters. She is the writer/editor in the Office of Communications & Public Liaison, overseeing the Resource Guide for Small Business and the SBA’s promotional materials.
While a student at UNLV, she was awarded a U.S. Fulbright grant to Romania, where she completed a project to develop a series of contemporary American literature workbooks to teach English communication skills. She presented on this project, “The Global, Creative ETA: Energizing Higher-Ed English Teaching,” at the 39th Annual Fulbright Conference Nov. 10-13, 2016 at George Washington University.
These workbooks incorporate communicative activities and group work for The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, and The Great Gatsby. The workbooks started as her service project while she was a Peace Corps volunteer in Ukraine as part of the Master’s International Writing Program at UNLV.
Bosshart worked as a journalist in her home state of Nevada for about eight years, which included three years as the business reporter at the capital city newspaper, the Nevada Appeal, and in the community news and online departments of the Las Vegas Sun.com.
