Dickinson Poetry Series Features Gibraltar Students
Eight young poets are the featured readers for the Dickinson Poetry Series on Wednesday, February 12 at 7 pm. A program devoted to young poets is an annual tradition for the series. The poets are prepared and coached by Gibraltar English teacher Lauren Bremer.
Evan Board reaches deep and pulls out words. When he is not writing voraciously in his personal journal he can often be found pacing, reciting Woody Allen in his bathroom mirror, or gently strumming his guitar to the rhythm of the universe.
Max Berndt has always loved to take things apart to make something else with the parts. He loves to weld and work with his hands. He loves to read and has an incredible ability to write, whether it’s essays, short stories, or poetry.
Ben Bruns: if heis not walking the expansive wilderness of Peninsula State Park or kayaking the Door County shoreline, he is most likely to be found writing. Since his first attempt in the second grade at poetry about time travel, he has come a long way.
Marcy Desotelle plans to study abroad her senior year. Though it is a step out of her comfort zone, as is this poetry reading, she expects to gain from the experience.
Alexa Ferrie is a junior. Her goal is to attend college and someday become the event planner/business woman she has always wanted to be. You will more often than not see her laughing with friends.
Libby Glabe is a junior who enjoys running, hanging out with friends, and learning. She was inspired to look into poetry after watching Sarah Kay’s TED talk that featured a lovely poem.
Lillian McDonald, a junior at Gibraltar, loves music with all her heart. She also loves sports, working, being home on the Island, and spending time with family and friends.
Floris Scherb is an exchange student from Stuttgart, Germany. He plays the flute and enjoys books. Here he has found friendships and new talents that he didn’t know he had such as singing, calligraphy and acting.
On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a renowned local or regional poet followed by an open mic, providing an opportunity for others to read their poetry. A reception with the poets follows. The public is welcome and there is no charge. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim.
