Poem suggestions wanted for project
The University of Alaska Anchorage is inviting all Alaskans to participate in a favorite poem project inspired by former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. Pinsky, a professor at Boston University and poetry editor of the online magazine Slate, will visit UAA for an Oct. 8 lecture and book signing to mark the grand opening of the new UAA-APU Consortium Library.
Pinsky is perhaps best known for a nationwide initiative inviting Americans to talk about their favorite poems. To celebrate his visit, UAA is organizing a similar project. To participate, type your favorite poem into an e-mail message and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. Oct. 8. Submissions must include your name, age and occupation. They also must include the name of the poem, the name of the poet and a brief statement explaining why you chose that particular poem as your favorite.
Selected submissions will be posted on UAA's Web Site beginning Sept. 13. In addition, several submitters will be invited to read their favorite poems aloud at an Oct. 21 reading.
