Angie Crea O’Neal is Assistant Professor of English at Shorter University in Rome, Georgia, specializing in eighteenth and nineteenth century British literature. She teaches writing and all facets of British literature, but her favorite literary subjects are the Romantic poets and Jane Austen. Angie received her PhD from Arizona State University in 2007. She lives with her girls, Marin and Maeve, and her aging dog, Lucy.
Angie Crea O'Neal reflects on her time at last year's Faculty Conference at Cedar Campus remembering that what we really need is to return to our origin and ultimate purpose: to a place of living not in the power of thought, or in satisfaction of want, or in the roundness of surfeit, but in the necessity of wing and prayer, conscious of only one day.
