Honors Faculty Member Marjory Wentworth talks about Why Poetry Matters

Marjory Wentworth’s students at the College of Charleston describe her as “one of a kind.” Her laughter and energy are infectious, and even though she doesn’t require attendance, her classes are always full.

Wentworth has been teaching courses in writing, poetry, social justice and banned books for the Department of English and the Honors College for six years.

“She goes above and beyond in every class she teaches,” says Elizabeth Meyer-Bernstein, dean of the Honors College. “She routinely creates new colloquia for the Honors College that are timely and rich in discussion. Marj is not only a gifted writer, but a remarkable educator and an asset to the students and our institution.”

And students are effusive in their praise for Wentworth. One student in her Honors course, Writer in the Community, commented, “I have truly never felt so academically supported and personally cared for by a teacher in my life … and I will remember her going forward as the type of professional and person I’d like to be – understanding, bright, kind, knowledgeable.”
