Class Experience

Students will complete 3 mini poems, or one 12+ line poem per week over the course of 4 weeks. Students will also dive into: metaphors, similes, figurative language, symbolism, free verse, rhyme, personification and much more.

She is a two-time Editor’s Choice recipient for the Allen Ginsberg Poetry Award, and she is the new Poetry Coordinator and Board Member for the NJCTE: New Jersey Council of Teachers of English.  

Her MFA in Creative Writing/Poetry is from Bowling Green State University in Ohio, and her BA in English/Creative Writing is from the State University of New York in New Paltz, New York. She has been an educator for 22 years, and she has served as a high school English teacher in a top rated district, and a Professor of English at a number of universities. 
Each Wednesday, students will submit their poetry for me to review from Monday's lesson. 
I will provide positive feedback for all poems submitted by Fridays. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
A Google slide deck for informational purposes will be used. The students do not need to have an account as this will be screen-shared from the instructor end.
