Saturday Guest Poets

I'm starting a new Saturday morning job this...Saturday...and for the next nine weeks. I will be teaching Creative Writing to middle schoolers (grades 7-9) at the Chiao Hsin Chinese Language School on 2231 Findlay Ave. in Monterey Park.

So...I just want to thank the poets below ahead of time for volunteering to be Guest Poets. I know my students will be greatly benefitted and inspired...just like the many times before at Occidental College. The poets will visit for the most part between 11am and 12pm, share three poems each, and answer any questions the kids may have.
