I’m really looking forward to taking on different challenges, gaining new knowledge and becoming a part of the Cape May County Campus team! Thank you to the faculty and staff here at the CMCC for such a warm welcome and my deepest gratitude to my Admissions and extended Student Affairs family for their support and well wishes.

Elinor Mattern retired from the English department last year, but she doesn’t call it retirement; she calls it freelancing. She’s writing and teaching creative writing here and there.

She recently had three poems published in The Red Wheel Barrow, one in the prosimetric travelogue, Beyond the Saguaros, and one coming out in Challenges for the Delusional: Prompts & Poems.

She will be giving a poetry reading in Bridgewater on Tuesday, Nov. 7.

She is also coordinating a program in which she and five other teachers will teach English at an engineering university in Prague next summer and took a training for teaching expressive dance.
