Assistant Professor of English
Writing Center Director
Ancilla College of Marian University
J. Chad Kebrdle has a Bachelor of Science in English from Ball State University and Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from Indiana University Kokomo that focuses on rhetoric and the teaching of college writing. He also has an MFA in Creative Writing from the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University in Boulder, CO. His poetry is inspired by Imagists such as Robert Frost and Ezra Pound in a style that he has dubbed “Landscape Poetry,” creating long, mural-type poems that focus on images both light and dark inspired by the deep rural surroundings of his home.
Kebrdle has taught several levels of Writing courses both in Academic Writing and Creative Writing. He has also taught classes in American Literature, Public Speaking, Humanities, and Video Game Design. Kebrdle is also the current Writing Center Director at the newly developed service at ACMU.
Outside of the classroom, Kebrdle is also a lover of music which often seeps into his academic endeavors. For fun, he is a regularly gigging musician and loves to spend time with his wife, Chantel whenever he can – most often enjoying the great outdoors.
