Former student Alison Turner’s poem, “from The Covid Notebooks,” appears in the Summer/Fall 2020 issue of the American Journal of Poetry.
Of her experience in a Writers’ Program class, Alison says, “Good lines just happen in a poem, but it’s those other lines that require effort and craft; Suzanne Lummis offered craft points in abundance, bringing to bear her immense knowledge of American poetry and its history. She encouraged a friendly collaborative effort to identify where poetry was happening in the poem under discussion, and where the problems were, passing on her understanding of what makes a poem work—and what can kill it—with humor and respect for our efforts.”
Congratulations, Alison! If you have a success story, we want to hear about it! Click here.
