I finally got my classes swapped and ended up with two great literature classes "19th Century British Novel" and "Senior Seminar in Literature: Anglo and Caribbean Literature." I've read very little Caribbean lit so this will be a new genre for me.
For my article and essay workshop, we read In Translation by Julianna Baggott. Baggott is a professor at my school and is someone who also "does" along with teaching. She has several books in publication as well as numerous articles. I had read profiles of her but had not read her work until last night. I'm hooked! She has a distinct clarity, strength and original voice that I want to study more of her writing. I wish now that I had applied to take a writing workshop with her. Her writing is amazing.
I won't be doing any of my own writing on Wednesdays since I go to class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Wednesdays are now homework days. Thursdays will now be like Fridays and I'll have Friday-Monday to write.
Back to Emma!
