I did not enjoy writing poems at all! I had a hard time understanding the message in most of the poems we had as assignments. I like to read books but never gave any attention to poems growing up so that might be the problem I had such a hard time with them. It was good to dabble in something new for a change and get out of my comfort zone of reading only stories. I can’t say I will be reading poems more now, but I will keep an open-mined about them and try to read some simple ones that might help me to understand them more.
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.
