West Clark reads his poem "A Synesthesiac Goes to the Symphony"
West Clark completed his year of service with the National Student Poets Program in the fall of 2015. Now, as an alumni, he delights in meeting the new classes of poets, reconnecting with old freinds from the program, and continuing to aid in the growth of his service project (which has bloomed beautifully into a yearly program known as the Red River Valley Writing Project). West is a freshman at Oberlin College in Ohio, and he hopes to continue his studies with a focus on music, writing and history.
Aline Dolinh reads her poem, "Transformation Sequence."
Aline is currently a second-year student at the University of Virginia, hoping to major in some combination of English, medieval studies, and art history. Aside from poetry, she also loves to write about the late medieval world, science fiction, and pop culture (though usually not all at once).
