Patricia Gott


While she continues to enjoy teaching longer works of literature, Gott has moved from teaching modern British Literature, her dissertation direction, at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, to explore the creative process through focusing on teaching, writing, and studying poetry. She also loves illustrating to her creative writing and composition students that their personal and creative stories and poems are worth hearing and that someone is always listening. She has maintained a lifelong interest in gender studies and publishes and reviews publications in that area.

Gott’s lengthy service involvement, includes the UWSP English Department Nominating Committee, her work as  English Department judge for annual poetry awards and annual Essayist awards. She served on the Ancestors Beneath Our Feet burial project on the Curriculum Advisory Committee. She continues to serve on the UWSP Library Committee and served on three Post Tenure Review Committees in spring 2022. View CV

Gott is a native of northern Wisconsin and feels most at home when in or near Lake Superior; she loves to walk, swim and just be in nature, the ultimate poem.

No two days are ever the same, just as no two students are ever the same. my students have taught me over the years about poetry, life and the power of persistence.
