Students at Denison enjoy a curriculum in English that balances the need for broad introductory courses with abundant opportunities to focus on special topics. In our small classes, students find varied but uniformly passionate instruction in American, British, and world literature. And for more than 50 years, Denison students have studied the art and craft of creative writing through the Writing Program’s workshops in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
Poet, professor, and performer, Karen Alkalay-Gut has published over 20 books of poetry and has read her poetry in places as diverse as Oxford University, the Nuyorican Café in New York, the UN, the Library of Congress, the Kennedy Center, the Arab and Druze towns of Tarshiha and Mghrar, synagogues, churches, and Jerusalem night clubs and poetry centers.
She has been teaching English literature at Tel Aviv University for over thirty years, and still hasn’t had enough.
