2-hour discussion of Marianne Moore’s “Poetry”: Wed., April 1, 11 AM-1 PM
Our series of 2-hour special ModPo TA “office hours” continues with the next session to be held this week — specifically on Wednesday, April 1, from 11 AM until 1 PM Philly time (eastern US time). Jess Shollenberger will lead this conversation, which will take place in a special thread inside the ModPo discussion forum. The poem Jess has chosen to discuss is Marianne Moore’s poem called “Poetry.”
The thread is HERE. That, to repeat, is where the discussion will happen at 11 AM on Wednesday.
