Jodie Hollander attended the Workshop in poetry from 1992-93.
I currently live in Washington DC; however, at the time I attended the workshops I was living in Milwaukee, WI.
I work at Commonwealth Academy, a school for kids with special needs. I enjoy my students very much, as they see the world from a unique perspective.
I listen to Robert Frost on my ipod, as I am learning meter. I also love to read Larkin.
My next book, Horse Bones, and most specifically working on writing in various metrical forms- dimeter, trimeter, and loose iambic pentameter.
The publication of my book, The Humane Society, and the forthcoming Hawthornden fellowship award.
The beginning of my journey where I first learned what I was meant to do with my life.
If this is your dream, do not let anyone talk you out of it.
