Dear Poet Project

In the spirit of Rainer Maria Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet, in which Rilke replies to letters from a young military cadet and aspiring poet asking for his advice, we are inviting students, staff, faculty, anyone to engage with poetry by handwriting letters to some of the poets who serve on the Academy's Board of Chancellors. Poet and UAS Faculty member Jen Vernon, author of "Rock Candy: poems", will lead participants through a short letter writing activity in response to a poem. Photos or scanned excerpts from these handwritten letters will be collected for sharing on the Egan Library social media sites.
