Muse Reading

Poetry: UCLA Award-Winning Student Poets 2010

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 English Department or by a state-wide consortium of universities. The program usually presents about a half dozen student poets, each of whom read for five to ten minutes. Many of the poets who have read previously on this occasion have gone on to do successful work in graduate school and beyond.
