She participated in two intensive role-playing workshops: "Modernism Versus Traditionalism: Art in Paris, 1888-89” and “Greenwich Village, 1913: Labor, Suffrage, and the New Woman." In addition, Koepp attended related sessions that explored ways to utilize this pedagogy to enhance rhetorical skills in first year writing seminars, another session entitled “The Radical Power of Play in the Humanities,” and a third on best practices in the RTTP classroom.

Issue 30.5, which gathered 108 poems after November 8, 2016, offers the collection “in paroxysm, comfort, disturbance, provocation, blaze, aid, or connection.” Closer to home, Rosenberg coordinated the selection of the 2017 Wells College Press Chapbook Contest winner.
