Virtual National Poetry Month
Studio 101 celebrates National Poetry Month virtually this year by having a number of activities that allows faculty and staff to participate in their online courses or through social media. The focus of our celebration is sharing our favorite poets and to share some creative erasure poetry.
For the first week, faculty can link a video of poets reading their work. The video is in Mediasite. In their Blackboard course, faculty can search “National Poetry Month Readings” in Mediasite and then link the video to their course.
For the second week, we are asking students, faculty, and staff to create their own erasure poem and to share the poem on social media using #tricpoetry. Poems posted on social media may be chosen and shared in Studio 101’s Virtual Gallery.
For the third week, students can go to FlipGrid and watch faculty and staff read their favorite poems.
