Sarah’s broad knowledge of American poetry was the foundation of our class. Her reading assignments represented various eras and schools of poetry and prompted me to think about several ways of writing. Our in-class discussions were lively and often brought out illuminating comparisons between the poets we’d read. Sarah could always point out the particular diction, rhythm, and tone of a poem and show how they worked together to draw in the reader. Each of her homework assignments called for thinking in a different way than before, which was not only interesting, but kept my creativity active. I looked forward to each session, which was always fun and stimulating.

"To say that my work would be at a standstill without the professional pen of Sarah might not be far from the truth. With insightful comments, I was able to transform my work into something I can submit with a higher degree of confidence. Her knowledgeable input gave me a sense that my work was in good and capable hands. And for this, I am grateful. Thank you Sarah for a job well done."

“Sarah Ghoshal was a student in a graduate creative writing class that I taught at Long Island University. Besides being a very talented poet and fiction writer, she was also excellent at offering her critique of writing by others. She worked well in collaborative groups in the classroom. Although I have not observed her teaching, my sense of it (through discussions with others in the Department and my experience with her in the classroom), is that she would be an excellent teacher. Graduating with an MFA, Sarah has gone on to publish her writing. Many MFA students stop writing after they graduate; therefore, I am always happy when Sarah sends me links to her poems.”

“Sarah has an impressive understanding of writing theory and practice, which she utilizes in designing some of the better course syllabi that I have reviewed. Sarah's ability to understand writing theory and synthesize it into efficacious and productive practice is commendable. She has unlimited potential as a teacher of writing.”

“Sarah is a true Renaissance woman. She has been a teacher of composition, poetry, 20th century and world literature, and creative writing, as well as a widely published poet in her own right. Sarah's students at Montclair State University and other institutions have recommended her as a tough but caring teacher who is always willing to help.”
