An Open Reading Series
It is difficult
To get the news from poems,
Yet men die miserably every day
For the lack
Of what is found there
~William Carlos Williams~
One Poem is an open poetry reading series meant to provide a venue for writers to share their work as well as the work of established writers they admire.
The series is open to the WSU community: students, staff, faculty and alumni: and to the community at large.
For every original poem a person reads they will be asked to compliment that poem by reading a poem of their choosing by another established and published writer: From Shakespeare to Stern, Bradstreet to Bukowski, Yeats to Young, Rumi to Rich and any and all between. If you have no original work to read but want to offer poems from writers you love, please join us. Sign up will occur at the beginning of each reading and the number of poems allowed each person will be determined by the number of willing participants.
This hopes to foster a creative community of writers and readers and to become exposed to writers beyond our own circles of interest. To celebrate what can be found in poems.
