Including Young Writers
From IMPAC-CSU Competition
SUNKEN GARDEN POETRY FESTIVAL
Hill-Stead Museum, Farmington, CT
In partnership with select high schools and student competitions, including the IMPAC-CSU Young Writers Competition, five students have been selected to read their award-winning verse. The student poets are Britta Bell (Litchfield High School); Jameson Fitzpatrick (Simsbury High School); Hannah Loeb (Kingswood-Oxford School); Sasha Debevec-McKenney (Windsor High School); and Nicole Morella (Ellington High School). Judges included award-winning poets and teachers Rennie McQuilkin, Steve Straight and Elizabeth Thomas.
Also, Guitarist Freddie Bryant, active in the New York jazz scene for over 20 years, presents a "gorgeous blend of delicate harmonics, ethereal harmonies and rhythmic freedom" with "an incendiary groove."
