Dr Ryan's approach to teaching/experiencing poetry is revolutionary for the person! It magnifies the individual student: in his/her own personal engagement with words and meanings; thus increasing confidence and sense of potential. Dr Ryan's classes are experiential, 'holographic' and enjoyable. It was especially interesting that she taught me - a Post Graduate Art Student - and through her work I feel I understand VISUAL meaning better now than I did before her class!
