Brief Biography

My name is Keith Beaudin. I am 22. I have lived outside of Fort Wayne since 1998, and am currently finishing my first of two Senior years here at IPFW. My favorite fields of history revolve around the culture of the twentieth century, specifically movies, music, and literature. However, I also have a passion for the history of American foreign policy and the Middle Ages. After I graduate, I hope to find some success as a screenwriter, even though I know this will be a difficult task. I've finished three screenplays in the last two years, the first of which I recently submitted for judging to the 2011 Nicholl Fellowships in Screewriting, hosted by the Academy Awards. This, entitled Pouring Into Verse, is the same screenplay that I won first place for at the 2010 Purdue Literary Awards. I will not learn if I succeeded in making the Academy's finalists until October so wish me luck! Also if you ever wish to read any of my work and give me some criticism, feel free to ask. If I find that my ultimate career choice falls through, I will probably attempt to stick with history and go to graduate school. In my free time I enjoy writing poetry, song lyrics, short stories, as well as watching new or classic movies, and listening to a wide variety of music that covers alternative rock, folk rock, classic rock, punk, pop, soul, blues, motown, funk, and jazz. I recently had two of my poems published in the 2010 edition of IPFW's Confluence Literary Magazine.
