Abstract

Imagery (noun): Visually descriptive or figurative language; visual images collectively; visual symbolism. The writers in this poetry jam perform original poetry that is inspired and created through the poets we have read in our Poetry workshop class that was facilitated by Dr. Laura Long. This panel is unified by each poet’s focus on imagery to paint a vivid picture in the mind of the listener. A sense of intense experiences of places and people shines through in these poems. These images the following poems will take the reader and listener to a close, far away, and even imitative places that we have yet to discover. The imagery will focus on the reader or listeners senses to create an amazing experience that anyone from any background can connect and relive through the prose. The poetry performed will let you see, smell, and hear common everyday experiences into a new unseen scene that the listeners will experience. An immense connection and feeling to the poems will occur and that is what imagery is trying to accomplish. The following poets will share their experiences with the audience in a way that they can live through and experience the scene or actions with them. Allie Jones, Hiatt O'Connor, Mallory Henderson, and Samah Rich will give pieces of their mind and thoughts to create simple common things into an extraordinary experience intended to take the audience and listeners with them. A discussion with the poets and audience follows.
