Description

This semester, I engaged in an extended writing project during which I wrote one poem every day for twenty-one days. During those three weeks, interactions between the obligations of daily life and imaginative play sprouted into an anthology which surprises, intrigues, and reveals themes in both my literary tendencies and my personal life.

During this presentation, I would like to read excerpts from the collection of work which I produced, edited, and finalized during this project. In addition to performing the poems, I would like to discuss the ways in which regular engagement with writing can not only bolster linguistic ability, but also strengthen personal introspective skills, act as a journalistic technique, and reduce anxiety regarding writing.
