Students from nearly 20 area colleges and universities, including Boston College senior Walker Halstad, will read their original work at the 2018 Greater Boston Intercollegiate Undergraduate Poetry Festival, to be hosted by Boston College today. Halstad, an English major and Hispanic Studies minor enrolled in the University’s Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program, submitted a poem titled “The Elements.” A chapbook of poetry written by participating students will be published in conjunction with the event. Poet Jennifer Barber, founding and current editor of the literary journal Salamander, will begin the festival with a keynote address. More from BC News.
