Library Events & Outreach, 2022-2023

About Poetry Corner

Since October, 2018, the Library's Poetry Corner Series has offered monthly poetry reading events featuring a range of poets.  Events are open to the Skyline College Community. Instructors may also sign up to participate as a class for readings and discussions. 

Poetry Corner sessions provide a safe and creative space for students, staff and faculty to express ideas, read original works, declare spoken word and engage in challenging discussions.
