National Poetry Month Outdoor Student Poetry Reading

Celebrate National Poetry Month with the UGA Libraries at two student poetry readings later this month.

The April 27 and 28 events will feature student poets from Stillpoint, UGA’s student literary magazine, and is hosted in conjunction with The Georgia Review, a nationally acclaimed literary-culture journal that is a unit of the Libraries.

On Tuesday, April 27, student poets will read their works on the Main Library steps, and attendees are encouraged to social distance and wear masks while they sit on the North Campus quad. On Wednesday, April 28, another selection of poetry will be shared in the Head Terrace behind the Miller Learning Center. Both events are set for 4 p.m., and attendees should follow COVID-19 safety protocols during the outdoor events.

In addition to the events, the Libraries are celebrating National Poetry Month by featuring books of poetry at display tables at the Main and Science Libraries, hosting a poetry reading nook in the Miller Learning Center’s reading room, and installing panels featuring a poem from The Georgia Review Winter 2020 issue at interactive locations in Main, Science, and the MLC. More features from UGA libraries and special collections can be found on Instagram at @ugalibs.
