I loved working with Karin she is an amazing poet and I really enjoyed the weekly poems although sometimes I had writers' block they are a major break from the work week and are a way to write it out. Karin is very understanding and an angel to work with

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. Jay Parini is a pleasure to have as a teacher. I came into the class intimidated because I had little background in creative writing and poetry. JP and classmates created a super welcoming and enriching environment. Easy grading, great atmosphere. Very glad I took this course.

Worst I have ever done in a class at Middlebury despite putting in more effort than most other classes. It seems especially unfair given that poetry is supposed to be subjective. Would not take this class again.

While this class is a lot of writing, it helped me grow so much as a writer having to constantly be working on something new and revising my work. Karin is the kindest and most accommodating prof I've had and she truly cares about her students and the course material.
