Creative Writing in Poetry with an emphasis in Medieval Literature, American Literature, and Spanish



Jennifer Poynter-Thompson began teaching Composition at OSU-OKC as a part-time instructor in the Fall of 2000 and then joined the full-time faculty in the Fall of 2010. She has been teaching Composition for over 20 years.


On campus, Jennifer is proud of her service as the present Honors Coordinator and past Faculty Senate Representative and Secretary.


When she is not working or shuffling one of her four kiddos to and from activities, she likes to cook or cozy up to a good book and hot cup of coffee on her back patio and watch the birds play. If you would like to see what she has been writing, she often publishes her newest poetry and interviews of creative types on her Jaybird blog at https://jaybird1937.wordpress.com.
