GUEST POETS AT OCCIDENTAL COLLEGE THIS SUMMER!

I again taught Writers Seminar for high school students in Occidental College's Upward Bound Program this summer. (This was my 27th summer doing so, woo hoo!)

So, once more, thanks to the generosity of L.A. poets, I got to give these students an unforgettable poetic experience...each day! Each Guest Poet shared poems with them, answered any questions they might have had, and (optionally) offered a writing idea.

I know they loved, learned from, and appreciated the visits (as they have in the past). Here were this summer's poets:
