Due Thursday: Final Writing Project
Work on your projects: in our workshop this week I recommended focusing the essays or sections of your essay with direct statements that make clear the mind and landscape/ecopoetic significance of the poems under discussion. Remember that even though you may be profiling a body of work by a poet the poet him or herself is important as the biographical or cultural context help to illuminate the primary purpose of what you are doing: explaining and analyzing mind-poetry-landscape.
Please be in touch with drafts or questions about organizing and presenting information. Please also consider and take advantage of the affordances of the blog to present your work (putting material on pages, writing an introduction or abstract as a static landing page for your blog/portfolio/site.
By Tuesday or Wednesday, choose and then send to Mark three poems that you will read / introduce for discussion at our final class meeting. These will be poems concerned with mind and landscape in one way or another, either from your project or that you believe are relevant to the work we are doing together. I will post the poems on the blog. You can either send the poem or a link to the poem if there is a digital version available.
The final blog/portfolio/site for your work this summer session is due on Thursday. However, if you would like, I am happy to do a final review of your completed work on Thursday and give you a manageable list of considerations/strategies for a final revision to be due on Friday at the end of the day. If you want to have me do this final review make sure that you have completed the project on your blog by noon on Thursday so that I have time to read and comment on your work.
