  • Advanced Poetry Student Authors Share Their Writing

    The students from the Advanced Poetry Writing classes shared some of their work from the semester. In the words of Mr. Hood, as he introduced the event, "The poetry...is relentlessly honest about the human condition. It is sometimes poets speaking from their own lives, with a very raw personal honestly, it's sometimes the poet creating a character." He further explained that both methods are ways of trying to access feeling for the reader. The appreciative audience was sizable and included a number of Creative Writing Program alums. Twelve poets shared their work.
