Marina DelVecchio's "What I Learned" Summary

Hi all,

I really enjoyed being part of this workshop. As I teach on the community college level, I am not part of a feminist group like this one. It has been a pleasure serving with like-minded feminist scholars who work to place women as first in their work and in their discipline. It was just very enjoyable and inspirational.

I only had one other group member in my group, but she was lovely and smart as a whip. I felt fortunate to be given the opportunity to read her brilliant book-in-progress. She provided me with excellent feedback in terms of how to revise my essay in terms of organization; she paid attention to my needs -- how to organize the content better-- and then she gave me a few places to send it to, which is one of my weaknesses. I write essays and then hoard them.

This was a great experience for me, and you can count on me for next year. Thak you for makingthis opportunit available to us.
