At the end of autumn quarter, students from the Honors Program Peer Instructor Seminars gathered together to perform poems from the Common Book. Each group of students choose a poem from the Common Book and performed their interpretation of it. These ranged from creative readings and photographs to skits and musical pieces.
Each group was evaluated by a panel of judges, which included Honors Writer-in-Residence Frances McCue, Professor Iain Robertson and Honors student and officer of the poetry slam group, Manic Mouth Congress, Shelby Handler. The evening was a wonderful reflection of the power of poetry to inspire creativity and artistic creation.
