April marks the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Month, the country’s largest literary celebration. Alongside the celebration of the art form, one of the main goals of the month is to further integrate poetry into the classroom. Today we spoke with Dr. Jan Harris, an associate professor of English at Lipscomb University. Harris’ collection of poetry, Isolating One’s Time in a Time of Crisis, is set to release in October. During our conversation, we spoke about her new book, the importance of integrating poetry into the classroom, why it’s important for students to hear about the publishing process, and some of her biggest influences as a writer.
