I am thrilled to offer the Poetry class again at a local tech college, where I have been an adjunct for 12 years. In other parts of the States, these two-year schools are called junior or community colleges, and offer not only greatly-reduced tuition, but the option for students to follow to a four-year school to complete a degree if they so choose.
It is not that I imagine myself to stand beside or even near the poets we read. Towards the end of the semester we look at more contemporary poems, and I share some of what my poetic friends are doing in their books/ on the web. My first book, Places and Times, is affordable at $12 US or so. We look look at some f my sonnet cycles and some others.
And I will sign it!
