JORDAN WINDHOLZ

Webpage of Jordan Windholz that includes information about his scholarship, teaching, and poetry.

I have taught both literature and writing courses, ranging from first-year composition classes and introductory creative writing workshops to surveys of literature (medieval to modern), topics in early modern literature, and advanced poetry workshops.

Philosophy (in brief)

I believe in the pleasures of literature, as well as the difficulty and discipline of reading and writing it. In any class I teach, I seek to foster and nurture  a student's enthusiasm for what is being read and written and to make frustration and confusion enabling responses, so that we learn to cultivate a critical sense of ourselves as readers and writers.
