Hill's focus at the University of Kentucky will be on creative writing. While she tends to specialize in fiction, Hill has a background that spans the writing spectrum from poetry to play writing. Hill looks forward to continuing her research work monitoring the politics of appearance while also being allowed the room to chase her more creative pursuits.
