Today, the RCAH Center for Poetry is pleased to welcome North Carolina poet Barbara Presnell to our Fall Writers Series. At 3 pm in Snyder C302, she’ll be leading a conversation about documentary poetry, which includes exploring family documents (letters, journals, and such), census reports, and family legends and giving them life on the page. Then, at 7 pm in the RCAH Theater, she’ll be reading from her collection of poetry, Piece Work, about a community of Appalachian mill workers. The reading at 7 will open with the winners of our 5th Annual Richard Benvenuto High School Poetry Competition. Hope to see you there!

The Center for Poetry opened in the fall of 2007 to encourage the reading, writing, and discussion of poetry and to create an awareness of the place and power of poetry in our everyday lives. We think about this in a number of ways, including through readings, shows, community outreach, and workshops. We are at work building a poetry community at MSU and in the greater Lansing area.
