Poetry at the Lake, a longstanding UWA tradition, will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 6 p.m. Any and all students are welcome to join the gathering held at the pavilion, only a few feet removed from the waters of Lake LU.
Celebrating the universal appeal of the written word, the event will see students sharing passages of their favorite works. While many choose to share a few lines from their favorite poems, excerpts from novels, songs, or even screenplays are enthusiastically encouraged.
Creative writing instructor and head of The Livingston Press, UWA’s very own publishing house, Dr. Joe Taylor is responsible for putting this event together each year, and each year Dr. Taylor’s world famous chilli threatens to overshadow even the most engaging of poetry readings. He states that “Poetry at the Lake has been a very successful event for nearly a decade now. It’s a great chance for students and faculty to get together informally. The chili dogs are great and not to be missed, even if you’re a vegan!”
Be sure to head out to Lake LU this coming Wednesday and seizure the opportunity to become a part of a UWA tradition that shows no signs of slowing.
