Laurier Poetry Group
On 25 Jan 2008, at 7 p.m., the Poetry Laurier Group--headed by Jessica Henderson and Igor Valentic--held an Open Poetry Reading in the Graduate Student Pub. Roughly 30 people attended, and numerous students read their works. Dr. Tanis MacDonald and Dr. Tamas Dobozy of the English and Film Department participated, reading from their published books and manuscripts. Brian Henderson, of Wilfrid Laurier Press--and recent finalist for the Governor General's Poetry Award--also read material. The event heralds the revival of Poetry Laurier, a small campus magazine that invites student poems, stories, drawings and photos. A second reading is planned for early this February. Questions concerning the magazine or Creative Writing Events on the Laurier Campus may be directed to Dr. E. Jewinski, Rm 2-146, DAWB (firstname.lastname@example.org).
