The Voice Within Us: A Poetry Reading by Evanston Township High School Students

This winter the Poetry and Poetics Colloquium and the English Creative Writing Major at Northwestern University started The Voice Within Us, a poetry-in-the-schools initiative. Throughout the month of February, Northwestern faculty and creative writing students Jonathan Ayala, Connor Eck, Amanda Laabs, Jenny Mahlum, Ali Pechman, Nicole Silverberg, and Mia Warren worked with students from Evanston Township High School after school, teaching and writing poetry. At this event, the students from ETHS share their poetry as part of Northwestern's Annual Spring Writers' Festival.
