National Poetry Month: NeMLA Conference @ Rutgers University

I am headed to Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, to attend and present at the Northeast Modern Language Association’s Annual Conference

I will be presenting Sunday morning as a part of this panel discussion:

Community in the Composition Classroom II: Literacies and Growth (Roundtable)
Chair: Deborah Sinnreich-Levi, Stevens Institute of Technology
“What Happens to ‘Community’ When Composition Goes Online?”
Guy Shebat, Youngstown State University
“Multiple Literacies, Multiple Communities: The Hybrid Composition Course”
Alyssa Colton, The College of St. Rose
“Interdisciplinary Learning Community: Academic, Professional, and Personal Growth through Composition”
Terry Novak, Johnson & Wales University
“Researching Reading Communities Beyond the Creative Writing Workshop”
Janelle Adsit, SUNY Albany
“Forming Three Communities for Composition Writing Classes: Class, School, and Professional”
Chloe Yelena Miller, George Mason University

You might consider registering and attending some of the many literature and writing related sessions that run tomorrow through Sunday. Yes, to keep up with National Poetry Month, you’ll find some panels focused on poetry. I’ll be sure to touch upon poetry in my presentation, of course, since I always include poetry in my composition writing courses.

See you in New Brunswick!
