Student poets from Gibraltar High School will take the Dickinson Poetry Series stage at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County, 10341 Hwy 42 in north Ephraim, on Feb. 12, 7 pm.
During the first year of the series, 2009-10, a Gibraltar student was a featured reader. It was such a success that the organizers wanted to encourage more student readers and established one reading each year just for student poets to read their work. The public is invited to attend.
Gibraltar English teacher Linda Fey organizes the reading. The student poets who will read this year are Matthew Austgen, Kimberly Church, Mara Packard, Taylor Stai, Cassidy Stark, Bella Vartanian, Nadeen Wassel, Nicole Wassel and Breighly Wehling. An open mic will follow the reading to allow others to read their work, and a reception will follow that, during which attendees can discuss the poetry with the participating students.
