UAS Faculty-Writer Wall in NYC
"...such an amazing experience to be reading in a place so many other wonderful poets have read."
In early February UAS English faculty Emily Wall gave a reading from her new book, Freshly Rooted at the Bowery Club in Greenwich Village, New York City. While in NYC Wall also attended the Association of Writer's and Writing Programs Conference. Reading at the Bowery Club was significant for Wall. “That club is a landmark in Greenwich Village and it was such an amazing experience to be reading in a place so many other wonderful poets have read," she said. She adds, "AWP is the flagship conference for all creative writers; this year 7,000 of us attended and the sessions were vibrant and enriching."
