Jeff Cohen I am so bloody tired of superhero movies. Since Superman in 1978, every few years some corporate rights-holder wakes up in the morning with the notion of taking another spandex-clad lunatic or another and making the most epic... Continue reading
As someone whose work you publish, Terri, I can honestly say your level of interest and involvement is wonderful. I hope you never have to have that conversation with me.

Jeff Cohen A number of my students last week were late with homework and explained they had problem with the assignment because they had Writer's Block. No, they didn't. There's no such thing as Writer's Block. We've been over this... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Let me lay a little groundwork here: I am not, by nature, a competitive person. I don't need to be Number One at everything. I didn't have to be valedictorian of my high school class (which was good,... Continue reading

Jeff Cohen Terri and Erin quite eloquently posted last week about Clean Reader, an app which apparently "cleans up" any work of literature--that is, anything that contains words--to best appease the sensibility of those who feel some parts of our... Continue reading
