Faculty Spotlight: Jill Alexander Essbaum

Home/Faculty News, Program News, Residency/Faculty Spotlight: Jill Alexander Essbaum

We’re taking a look at two members of our faculty each day through our upcoming application deadline — February 1st — and today, it’s poetry professor Jill Alexander Essbaum. First, a revealing interview...where Jill answers questions posed in teen magazines:

Secret Talent: I can recite the entire (all three) Jive scenes from Airplane!, not just the Barbara Billingsly bit that everyone knows.

What is the best thing about your job? I work with more amazing and hilarious people than you can imagine.

What was your most embarrassing audition moment? In a dream, I sang “Suspicious Minds” for Simon Cowell and I failed.

And, audio of Jill reading her poem “Stays”.
