HOWL: An on-line conference for an off-line poetry seminary

Computers and Composition Volume 15, Number 1, ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This article describes how an on-line conference was used in a graduate poetry class with students who were not accustomed to using technology in their coursework. The writer, herself a poet, suggests that the conference extended the depth and quality of the discussion, opening up areas of discourse that would not have been possible to cover within the class. An unexpected outcome was the discovery that the students went beyond assigned topics to create and engage in their own discourse enriched by their diverse backgrounds and voices.
