Poetry: UCLA Award-Winning Poets

For over a decade, the Poetry Series has concluded its annual offerings at the end of the academic year with a reading by several UCLA students whose work has won awards in contests sponsored either by the Department of English or by a statewide consortium of universities.


This series of readings is organized and hosted by Stephen Yenser, poet and professor at UCLA and author of A Boundless Field: American Poetry at Large and Blue Guide.
