State of California Recognizes Villanova Student Poets

State of California Recognizes Villanova Student Poets

Chelsea Fogle (2024) and Shaw Liu (2021) submitted poems  to the California Poets in the Schools annual poetry competition.  Cal Poets’ goal is to help  “previously unpublished young voices to find their audience, while creating tangible memories to be shared with future generations.” As recognized poets, Chelsea and Shaw were invited to attend a masterclass on poetry writing with Juan Felipe Hererra, the 21st United States Poet Laureate.  Also, in recognition of their entries, a professional graphic artist created a broadside (shown here) for each of their poems: “Reincarnation,” by Shaw, and “Perceptions Flicker Through the Flame,” by Chelsea.
