Greater Boston Intercollegiate Undergraduate Poetry Festival

Undergraduate student poets representing some 20 Boston area colleges and universities will gather at BC April 25 to present their work at the annual Greater Boston Intercollegiate Undergraduate Poetry Festival. All participants read original work at the event, and a chapbook of poetry by the participants is published in conjunction with the festival. BC senior Sherry (Yu-Hsuan) Hsiao was selected to present her poem “Twenty Minutes to Jing An.” The event will feature a keynote address by writer Andrea Cohen, director of the Writers House at Merrimack College and the Blacksmith House Poetry Series in Cambridge. The recipient of a PEN Discovery award and Glimmer Train’s Short Fiction Award, Cohen is the author of Unfathoming, Furs Not Mine, Kentucky Derby, Long Division and The Cartographer’s Vision. Her poems and stories have appeared in the New Yorker, Poetry, Threepenny Review, The Atlantic, and New Republic, among other publications. More from BC News.
