Carmine Sarracino

Carmine Sarracino is another Elizabethtown College connection; he was a professor of mine. The first class I had him for was about fantasy in literature. Any class that has Frankenstein and the Ramayana on its required reading is usually a good class to take.

I also took a couple of creative writing classes from him. In my senior year, I needed to carry a full course load so I arranged an independent study with Carmine as an advanced poetry writing seminar. One of the best things I ever did. We’d meet every other week or so and workshop something I was working on. It was a great opportunity to see how another poet’s mind works.
