Last exam graded... My first batch of fully online students have flown their little OntarioLearn coop. (OK well a couple fell out of the nest, but there are always one or two...)
For me this was a somewhat surreal experience, to be "teaching" students I never met. Not comparable to classroom teaching, but satisfying in its own right.
Did You Recognize Me?
In January, my poem "Do You Recognize Me Without My Tomahawk" won Geist Magazine's Erasure Poetry Contest and it's online here.
The Contest is called "erasure" not because that's an edgy pomo word (as one of my friends imagined) but because contestants have to create their poetry by eliminating words from an assigned text. The leftover words become the poem.
