The 2013 National Student Poets Are Featured in the March/April 2014 issue of Poets and Writers

The 2013 National Student Poets are featured in the March/April 2014 issue of Poets and Writers. In addition to what is mentioned in the article, Sojourner has already started a series of poetry workshops in a senior home, in Michigan, for people who primarily have Alzheimer’s. Inspired by the very fabulous Gary Glazner and his Alzheimer’s Poetry Project, Sojourner and several of her generous classmates are working with these seniors to recall their favorite poems and create new ones. 
  
I’ll keep you updated on her other service projects as well. Thanks for all of the love and support. It takes a village!
