NEWS TIP: Student Newspaper Columnist at UT Tyler Featured in Chicken Soup for the Soul
Patriot Talon columnist Tina Bausinger of Tyler, an English major at The University of Texas at Tyler, is among the authors featured in the national bestselling book series, “Chicken Soup for the Soul.”
Her short story, “Dad’s Tomatoes,” is appearing in the new series “Chicken Soup for the Soup: Thanks Dad. 101 Stories about Gratitude, Love and Good Times.” Bausinger wrote the story as a tribute to her father, who died in 2003.
A second of her stories is scheduled to appear this summer in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners.”
Bausinger writes a weekly humor column in the Patriot Talon student newspaper.
An award-winning writer, Bausinger’s short story, “Picking Tomatoes,” was featured last year in Tyler Junior College’s literary magazine.
She also won first prize in the UT Tyler poetry contest last year and placed first in the Best Short Story category at the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association Awards.
