Presentation by students
Join 11 students as they present their final projects from the class 'Poetry is Not a Luxury': Reading and Writing Poems that Matter. This workshop course introduces students to the diverse voices, styles, and techniques of contemporary poetry, and discusses why writers choose to engage with love, loss, history, queer identity, technological alienation, mass incarceration, or systemic racism through poetry. These students have written a sustained body of poems supported by guided independent reading of the voices and styles they find most compelling.
