Host:
UW - Riverways
Online Poet Laureate Event

Please note that the time of this event has been corrected. The event begins at 3:30 pm.

Washington State Poet Laureate Rena Priest will be conducting a workshop and presentation for a group of 25 UW undergraduate students around the theme of writing poetry with children (2nd – 5th graders). This workshop will be open to anyone who wants to observe it.

The students are part of a UW/Riverways project that connects them with elementary students in rural and tribal communities around Washington state. The UW students will be writing poetry with these children during the week of March 21-25 as part of their Alternative Spring Break.

Rena Priest is the current Washington State Poet Laureate. A member of the Lhaq’temish (Lummi) Nation, she is the author of Patriarchy Blues, which was honored with the 2018 American Book Award, and the recent Sublime Subliminal.

The Poet Laureate program is sponsored by Humanities Washington and The Washington State Arts Commission/ArtsWA, with the support of Governor Jay Inslee. See the full website of the Poet Laureate here.
