February Recap

February Castalia was a lovely affair. The full moon that fateful night brought out everyone's best imaginations. First year poet Jay Yencich wowed us by demonstrating that one can use the word tesseract in a poem. Second year Katherine Eulensen shared some poems about soil, water, sky and grape, and fellow second year poet Erika Wilder embraced her cards, reading some tarot-inspired poems. After the break, second year prose writer Piper Daniels shared a moving selection from her collage work. Alum Emily Beyer gifted us with poems via spoken word and song, and UW's own David Shields shared a compressed mashup from his book "The Thing About Life is One Day You'll Be Dead."
