Does there dwell within each of us an inner poet? Or, at the very least, the ability to appreciate poetry? That’s what Emily Wall believes. As a professor at the University of Alaska Southeast, she’s spent years cultivating writers, while pursuing her own passion for poetry.
On Juneau Afternoon today, she’ll share some of her favorite poems.
We’ll also hear from the top two high school finalists in the Poetry Out Loud competition.
Guests: Emily Wall, poet and teacher. Amanda Filori, Poetry Out Loud statewide coordinator. Asya Gipson, two-time state champion. Tatiana Watkins-Snow, statewide runner-up.
- Poetry in nature: birds winging their way to Juneau every spring. Find out about self-guided bird watching trips, mapped out by the Juneau Audubon Society. Guest: Brenda Wright. Juneau Audubon Society.
