I originally intended in late May 2020, when the spring semester was finally over and I had some time to finish “Spring 2020 Links (Pre-COVID-19),” to post one big link dump for coronavirus-related things. But the hyperarchival barrage of news over the past three months, including everything that has happened in the United States the past three weeks (combined with how little time I still have . . .), has made it clear that it would be better to divide posts into smaller, more manageable bits. So here is everything I came across from March 11-April 15, 2020. More to come soon.

This spring, I’m teaching two brand new courses at Hartwick College: a writing-intensive course covering the poetry of Adrienne Rich, Audre Lorde, Eileen Myles, and Claudia Rankine; and a senior seminar on John Ashbery. Lots of great poetry! The syllabi:
ENGL 247 Four Modern American Poets: Rich, Lorde, Myles, and Rankine
ENGL 470 John Ashbery in Context
I’ve moved select syllabi from the blog to my Academia.edu account. So if you’re looking for an old syllabus and can’t find it, look there or get in touch with me.
This fall, my third at Hartwick College, and as 2019-20 Winifred D. Wandersee Scholar in Residence, I’ll be teaching just one class, ENGL 312 Intermediate Poetry Workshop. Here’s the syllabus.
This semester I’m teaching (to me) three brand new creative writing classes at Hartwick College. Here are the syllabi:
ENGL 310 Creative Writing: Nonfiction
ENGL 311 Intermediate Fiction Workshop
ENGL 412 Advanced Poetry Workshop
I am beginning my second year teaching English and creative writing at Hartwick College this week. Here is the syllabus for my fall class:
ENGL 312: Intermediate Poetry Workshop
I am beginning my second semester teaching English and creative writing at Hartwick College this week. Here are the syllabi for my two spring classes.
ENGL 213: Introduction to Creative Writing
ENGL 350: Poetry and Technology
I am looking forward to my first fall semester at Hartwick College. I’ll be teaching three classes: Introduction to Creative Writing (ENGL 213); Reading Modern Poetry (ENGL 250); and Creative Writing: Poetry (ENGL 312). This semester is especially exciting because I will be returning to the creative writing classroom, and, I mean, look at all this poetry:
I’ll post syllabi when they’re complete. No class blogs this semester, but probably soon, especially if I do something new this spring.
I am delighted to announce that I have accepted the position of Assistant Professor of English at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, where I will be teaching creative writing, poetry, and twentieth- and twenty-first-century United States literature and culture. I will be joining Hartwick’s English Department this fall and will be teaching three classes: Introduction to Creative Writing (ENGL 213), Reading Modern Poetry (ENGL 250), and Creative Writing: Poetry (ENGL 312). I am really excited about this new chapter in my life and career. Thanks to all those–too numerous to name–who have supported me along the way; your indefatigable encouragement has meant so much.
