I found writing poetry challenging due to the major style shift, with being used to writing more longer form pieces. Having to fit an idea or theme into the smaller structure of a poem was a struggle, but it taught he how to adapt to the style and appreciate the poetry format. Reading the various poems helped me understand their appeal, such as even if they are short in length, they can e very thought provoking due to the vagueness or anbiquity of what is being said.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Office Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 AM – 1 PM. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation via email that you should keep all semester. 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. I suggest you have multiple times in mind, since your schedule may not mesh with mine!
