My experience with poem writing was alright, when we were assigned this assignment I wasn’t looking forward to it because I don’t think I’m a good poem writer. I’m more of a story writer type of person. When writing my 4 poems I oddly didn’t struggle, I just expressed some things that wanted to be released but in a poetic way. I often re-read them in order to see if they made sense to me and the reader. The feedback I got from my Cohort also helped me. Overall it was a better experience than I thought and it makes me want to practice more of it.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Office Hours: 1 to 2 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation through email each week. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email.
