Thanks. I appreciate it. The strange thing is that I never imagined her as a typical academic. She told us the absolutely incredible story about how she was expelled from her high school, the fact that she doesn't believe in grades (it turns out that she's one of four teachers here who're trying to ...

no matter how much you respect your instructor, take her criticisms with a grain of salt Oh, of course. That's why the revised version still has the first and last stanza, why the allusions remain (save for one), why there's nothing profoundly different between the two versions, just that one's cle...

If you go by this view, then maybe your prose poem didn't correlate well to the standard. No. I had thought about this before I ever wrote the poem, and asked her after class one day if it would be alright by her if I turned in a prose poem (and even gave a fairly detailed description of the exact ...

And the other thing is that I can't even write her off as a bad teacher. She's an excellent teacher... easily numbering among my favorite (I think that I'd place her at #3 at present). Anyway, here's the version of the poem that she graded, so that you get an idea of what I'm talking about: “The Tem...

"The Tempest: Being a Nativity in Prose"

This happened a while ago, actually. Doctor Zona, my English 100 professor, assigned us to write a poem about the nature of identity. It was a simple enough assignment, all in all. I wrote the poem and then revised it, and got to two where I thought it of a decent quality. I mean, granted, it was fa...

Bad Religion, "New Dark Ages"

Well... it ended in the middle of writing it out, so now I'm on to... let's see.... I think that I could do with some Flogging Molly... "What's Left of the Flag," more specifically.

It had taken Caitir some time to realize that the lack of company over the last year had sombered her tremendously. It was good to be with people again, she decided. "I don't know... I think that I saw Ladarious a ways back haggling over bottle of half-drunk mead... although it could have just ...

Caitir jumped on Nero's back like an excited little child, pressing her weight into his shoulders. "Hey there! Long time no see." She walked around and took a seat adjacent to him in front of the fire. She reached into her back and pulled out a skewer of roasted meat, potatoes and peppers ...
