National Day on Writing

We asked LaGuardians for the 2020 Celebration: “How does writing keep you connected?” The first 5 stanzas were compiled from responses gathered prior to the Day on Writing celebrations; the sixth and final stanza includes contributions from participants in our virtual celebration on October 20th, 2020. Over 100 LaGuardia students, faculty, and staff contributed to the poem.

We recorded faculty reading the collaborative poem on October 20, 2020, at our 2pm celebration! Many thanks to readers Drs. J. Elizabeth Clark, Sonia Alejandra Rodriguez, Laura Tanenbaum, Belkis Gonzalez, and Misun Dokko, and to everyone who contributed to the poem!
