Poetry in the time of COVID-19
Wed Sep 2, 2020
Pioneer Stage at Glenville State College

The 17th annual Trillium reading on August 26, cosponsored by the Little Kanawha Reading Series, was a success.
Featured reader Danielle Kell, a poet from WVU-Parkersburg and contributors to the Trillium read their pieces to a masked, socially distanced audience at the Pioneer Stage that included students, professors, and Glenville State College’s new president, Dr. Mark Manchin.

The reading was also streamed on YouTube for viewers who could not attend in person, which is something professor Jonathan Minton would like to continue for future readings. Not only does it give access to viewers who may not be able to attend, it allows the audience to watch the reading at any time, even after the reading has taken place.
