This fall I’m teaching two sections of Intro to Creative Writing, one section of Fiction Writing, and a section of Contemporary American Literature.
Going to be fun. Busy, too. And exciting—I grew up on college campuses and the start of school was for me always more exiting than stupid Christmas. As an adult—as a professor--it's of course different than it was when I was a kid, when I rode my bike around the quiet nearly-silent campus, watching students move into the dorms, fascinated by adulthood, while at home my parents did whatever they did to prepare for classes. Now I'm the one at home preparing, going through various frenetic activities....
But—as of now, my syllabi are posted to Canvas, my slides are ready to be loaded, and—and--
I guess I’m ready. Hope the Young Scholars are ready, too….
